Newbie: Linux+Win95 partitions?
Posted on 1997-12-07
I am about to install Linux on an 8gig IDE hard drive. My
plan is to let Win95 occupy a small C drive all by itself,
with a D for apps and software, and E for everything else.
Next would come Linux's root, swap, /usr, and /home. My
qestion regards the Linux partitions. From what I have read,
applications (like Netscape) will install themselves to
/usr/local. Is this correct? If so, I will make a fairly
large /usr partition.
I figure that most data would reside on the E drive so that
it can be accessed with both OSes. In that case, I'm looking
at the partitions being: C small, D large, E large, / small,
swap 64MB, /usr large, /home small. Does this sound right?
Any recommendations on partition size?
