Topic: Two drives, only want to partition one
My computer has two hard drives, a 20GB main drive (C) and an 80GB Seagate hard drive (F) used for storage. The Seagate was installed two years after I built the computer. I would like to partition the 80GB drive into two or three partitions and put Linux on one of them. I want to leave C drive alone.
I downloaded GParted and made a boot CD with the ISO file. I need easy, simple instructions. For example, since the drive has never been partitioned, it is one big partition, correct? So, do I make it smaller to create two partitions? Can I specify that I want three partitions, or four? The F drive does not boot up since it does not have an operating system but I assume that if I put Linux on a partition that I must tell it to boot so that when the computer starts I get a dual-boot screen where I choose what I want to boot, correct?
Sorry to be such a pain.
