I need just a touch of partitioning advice, as I seem to have screwed up (not TOOO royally) in my last few projects concerning gparted.
So, here's my situation and plan. I have a 750GB HDD. I want Vista, Mint, OpenSUSE and Solaris in different partitions. My "main" partitions (i.e., the ones that I'll be using 95% of the time) will be Vista and Mint. I just want OpenSUSE and Solaris on there to mess around with them and see how they work. Now, I guess the monster share of the HDD should go to Vista, since that's where all the huge games, etc. will be going.
So, I was thinking about 500GB to Vista, 150 to Mint, and 50 each to OpenSUSE and Solaris. (These aren't set in stone, so if you have a better idea, let me know!) SO, what is the best way to accomplish this? Step-by-step (in a general sense--you don't need to say "click here, click there" but more like "Make an NTFS partition here and put a ext3 in an extended partition, etc etc etc.) would be nice.
Also, is there an easy way of making an EXACT copy of a partition to copy from one HDD to another? (I want to move my current Vista installation and Mint installation from a smaller drive to this new one)?
Thanks a lot for your help.
