I can say, to my eternal shame, that I have failed at step 4 of 7
I have just started using linux and mint for the first time, but had long considered building it onto my PC. I have burnt a correct copy of mint onto a disc, which is whirring away happily on the other PC. It is running mint, from disc, but upon getting to what is apparently the hardest part of the installation stage, partitioning, I am stumped. I have already set up a partition while installing windows (BIOS anyway), but I would like to avoid deleting my windows for mint. When faced with choosing how to partition, I should, according to the introduction PDF on the Wiki, I should use a Guided - Resize option, but I note its nonexistance. So I wondering what anybody thinks I should do.
(Sorry about not capitalising Mint)
I will be doing other things as well, but if anyone has any questions, I should reply within the minute.
Thanks in advance, Jimjim32
