Hi All, I am thinking about formatting my hard disk and restarting everything from scratch. I would like some advice please! I have a 320G hard drive. (In practice this is about 300G) I am thinking about partitioning it like this 6G - Pagefile 4G - Swapfile 10G - Windows XP Home (NTFS) 10G - Ubuntu (EXT 3) 10G - Windows Programs (NTFS) 10G - Ubuntu Programs (EXT 3) 50G X 4 - Data (FAT 32) Please would people tell me what they think of my idea and any thoughts they have about it! Will PS - please tell me if I am right in thinking I can have the program folders for each OS in a separate partition to the OS' themselves.
