    Why did you allocate small space to /dev/sda1 partition?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    didn't you say "Create 10-15 GB, ext3 for /"

    oh, i forgot to mention. i was planning on dual booting with vista once it arrives in the mail. so would that make a difference in what i do?

    In that case, you should install Vista first. Sometimes dual boot doesn't work if Windows OS installed after Linux.

    /dev/sda1 -- Primary, NTFS for Vista
    /dev/sda2 -- Extended, rest of free space
    /dev/sda5 -- Logical ( inside Extended ), NTFS for data sharing between Linux and Vista.
    /dev/sda6 -- Logical, 10-15 GB, ext3 for / of Linux
    /dev/sda7 -- Logical, 512MB, SWAP

    You can create 11 Logical Partitions inside Extended Partition. You can create 2 more Primary Partitions later on, if you need.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
