Newb kid on the block!!!

Hi all,

Looking forward to using this OS.

Just installed today, then read the guide. Then read Fred's post about partitions. Rather than reinstall near 6 months I think I need to do it after 6 hours!!!! LOL! No biggie I just don't think I made the Main partition big enough.

Chat @ u soon.

Welcome to the community Finn. Looks like you've already done some great research here. Yes, I've reinstalled Mint several times. It's so simple to install that I never worry about borking my system. I always keep a live-dvd image of my complete system that is never more than 2 weeks old.
