    Re: How many partitions do you use?

    I usually would used two hard disk one partition for the OS like ubuntu on it and the software that I want installed on the primary partition. And the second drive I would use for user accounts and their data on that one. Everyone here has their own preference on this area. There is no wrong way of doing this section here. ANd it is a matter of personal preference on it too. If your able to handle more than four hard drives on a system, they it is better of for you. ANd get it the way you want to do it. I had on my old Aptiva with a 20 and 30 gig hard drive with hoarty hedge hog on it. An just use each hard drive with a partition on each of them.

    Re: How many partitions do you use?

    I'll admit it. I have a lot of partitions.
    1. ext3, mounted as Kubuntu / (10 GB)
    2. fat32, FreeDOS partition for old games (1 GB)
    3. reiserfs, mounted as Kubuntu /home (63 GB)
    4. linux-swap of course (1 GB I think)
    5. reiserfs, another Linux installation (3.2 GB)
    (I installed GRUB to a floppy on the last one so it didn't interfere with the rest of my system)
