Hello all, I have decided to Dual Boot Ubuntu 12.10 and Windows 7 on my main laptop. I have used Ubuntu before on my secondary machine but I did a clean install. I have already shrunk my Windows Partition down. I have about 300 GB for free space left for the remaining partitions. I just need help making the partitions in gparted. I need one for the Ubuntu installation, I have read that I need a swap partition (need help with that), and a partition for shared files between the two OS's. I have read multiple guides but they are outdated and I would rather have the most up to date information. If you could point me to a guide that's up to date, thank you. If you just tell me here, thanks twice as much lol.
Thanks in advance
