I want to install gentoo but not sure how to go about setting up my partitions as i also want to dual boot with windows which is occupying 2 primary partitions of my hard drive (meaning i only have another 2 primary partitions left without using an extended partition).
My partition table looks like so
/dev/hda2 NTFS (windows)
/dev/hda3 Fat32 (windows)
Now its my understanding that i will need to create another 3 partitions to house gentoo:
1: The boot partition
2. The swap partition
3. The root partition
In terms of fdisk can can you explain howd id go about setting these partitions up, and whether they need to be primary or extended? Thanks
oh and btw, will i need a boot partition as i will be dual booting and using the windows boot.ini file to boot lilo which will boot gentoo.
Thanks for any help
