Katzedecimal wrote:2) I understand that the / partition needs to be a primary partition and flagged as bootable. If I used a /home partition, would it be marked as primary as well, or extended? Would a data partition be primary as well? If /home was to be extended, would data be a logical partition within the extended partition? What's the most preferred way to go when going the simple route?
Katzedecimal wrote:3) Where to mount a data partition and how to label it. Looking at the mountpoint choices available in Gparted, I see mainly /, /home, /usr, /var, /mnt, etc, without much room to customise. What's the best way to mount a data partition?
