I've been interested in getting a distro of linux for a while, and am just now getting around to it. I downloaded the disc image and put it on a dvd, and am running off the dvd right now. I don't have a single drive that I could format and make just Mint, and Im having trouble with the partition stuff. From my past experiences, deleting a partition deletes everything inside the partition. My installer wont let me make a new partition inside the current partition table on any of my drives. I cant afford to lose what's on my drives, and cant back it up easily. Can someone guide me through a solution to this please? Also, what file system do I choose?
Thanks a lot guys,
