Archlinux 86-64 2007 08-2 core (Host OS)
The R Project for Statistical Computing
Guest OS to be decided later
I'm prepared installing Archlinux on a box with 80G SATA-II HD installed to test R-project. My planning will be as follows;
balance for Guest OS
It needs at least 5 partitions. So I plan to have /home and "Guest OS" on ext partitions. I haven't figured out how to further partition "Guest OS" partition in future unless runnning LVM. Besides this is a virtual machine the "Guest OS" partition must be in VMWare partition. I started searching guides on Archlinux website and found follows;
ArchWiki :: Installing with Software RAID or LVM - ArchWiki
Partition the Hard Drives
Setup LVM and Create the /home LVM Volume
Please advise are the above documents appropriate for my guidance. OR are there more detail documents? TIA

A good Formula before formatting
this is karan singh......
I appretiate your question tag.
But as far as my views are concerned on this I think you should format your
hard drive in a manner which is given below:
1. primary partition should be below 5GB.
2. Install all your softwares on the next partition.
There is a big reason for this formula......more over the linux OS follows only this formula for alll of its procedures.......enjoy.......dearrrrrrrrrr
