1) How can I partition it without losing my data
Partition Magic. it's a tool for windows and it lets u do a lot of stuff with partitions while keeping the data intact (or at least trying very hard too)
u can with Partition Magic but i advise u not to do that. resizing your partitions may fuck up your bootloader.2) can I easily resize my partitions later
is it just gonna be a desktop system?3) what would you guys suggest for my linux partitions,
swap /boot /
swap / /etc /boot /home
if so, just get a swap partition and a / partition. that's how i do it. if it's for a server then there are advantages to having multiple partitions but i really don't see the point if it's just a desktop system.
