My current laptop is running only Vista, no partitions. Just want to make sure of things before I screw my computer up.
I want to install Linux Mint on its own partition and create another partition for data shared between the two OS, eg. music, video.
The shared partition should be NTFS (I think), and I create this in Vista itself as a new partition.
For the Mint partition, do I need to create unallocated space (unformatted partition) in Vista and install Mint onto that, and should I put the linux home folder on this partition or on the shared partition?
As far as I understand I need a 10-14 gig partition for Mint.
Thanks for your help.
