How to Partition Hard Disk Tutorial Extras:




I have Given Dual Boot Partitions earlier 🙂

If you have an empty hard drive or wish to delete the entire contents of your drive, then let the installer automatically partition or remove everything and partition.

If you wish to dual-boot or save some contents on your drive, then select custom Layout partitioning. I recommend at least 3 partitions of Free Space :

1) 10GB / main partition,

2) 10GB /home partition

3)About 1GB <swap> partition.

4)/boot Partition 1 GB

/ Partition is the main partition is where your applications will be installed.

The /home partition will hold all your personal data (larger is better).

The <swap> should be at least as large as your physical memory (if you wish to support things like ACPI hibernate).

/boot is Used For Booting


Boot Loader

If you have a blank hard Drive or wish Fedora to be your Primary Operating System, then leave the default options here. This also works for dual booting with other systems (ex: Windows).

If you wish to preserve Windows as your primary operating system, then install Grub on the / partition, NOT the MBR. To do this, select Configure Advanced Boot Loader Options and install to First sector of boot partition. I use Bootpart from Windows 2000/XP to load Linux .:)

Network Setup

The networking options will default to dynamically configure the network using DHCP. This will work for most high speed internet users.

NOTE: IPv6 – If you select Edit under Network Devices you can disable IPv6 for Fedora. This should not be necessary, however it may be helpful to disable here and re-enable later if you know you have problems with IPv6.


Thanx 🙂
