Installing with 2 hard drives??HELP

Postby youdkelon on Tue Mar 31, 2009 10:02 pm

Hi everyone I'm a newb. I have two hard drives, one hard drive is 500gb and the other is 1tb. I want to use the second drive primarily to for movies and to store other files for backup. I have no idea on how to set up the partitions correctly and If any one can give me some advice on how to partition correctly and all that it would be much appreciated.

thanks very much

We need to know what you plan on doing with your system. Do you plan to dual boot Windows AND Linux, or are you going to run Linux only? How much space do you plan on using for Linux, etc. etc.?

Hi, thanks for replying, I plan on only using Linux. I plan on using the system for everyday use, internet, downloading movies, stuff like that...not gaming or anything like that.

Thanks

I'm curious here. Why'd you post the same topic twice, once in the Installation & Boot section, and one here in the Newbie Questions section? At first I thought it was my mistake and I was seeing double. :wink:

I didn't know in what section it belonged, so I tried both :)
