Thread: Installing Slackware 9.1 questions

    Installing Slackware 9.1 questions

    I did some searching through this site and other sites, and came across this, which looks very helpful, but i have a few questions on some things.

    First I am installing Slackware on a seperate HD, which currently has nothing on it, which is ste up as the primary slave so for Fdisk I am guessing i would use fdisk /dev/hdb ?

    Also the person who typed this loses me when he gets into, setting up different partitions. What exactly is a logical drive ?

    I understand about the main partition and swap partition, but are the other partitions just personal preference or are they a good idea to have ? Any recommended sizes for swap partition ?

    thanks for any help let me know if my questions arent clear

    I'd recommend using cfdisk or qtparted which can be found on the bootable live distro (no installation needed)

    Here's a good site for partitions:
    (yes I know it uses win as an example)

    Swap should be twice your RAM, and for desktop use, it's nice to have everything as one / partition, I generally do that unless I have multiple drives.
