Total noob: Keep data on reboots

Postby NewToPenguins on Sat Dec 08, 2012 12:32 pm

Hey everyone!

I am a total noob to Linux and also to Mint.

I installed UBuntu and then saw this in an article so am installing Mint as well ;) but going to run it via my USB stick on my Windows machine as I have no idea if I am going to like or be with Linux for long (still playing it safe :P )

I have downloaded unetbootin and then burnt the iso onto my usb stick.

This may sound stupid but keep in mind I am totally new to this; on the unetbootin "config" screen it says to allot some space that gets saved between reboots, but it lists it only for Ubuntu, can I give it some space there even though this is not Ubuntu (but from my reading a fork of ubuntu) or will that screw things up?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
