Best partitioning recommendations for 2 HD's
I have an older machine that is presently running 2 HD's on it (160 gib & 120 gib) and would like to be able to load Ubuntu 8.04 LTS as well as other distros for experimenting with. I'm getting used to Fedora 9 atm and would most likely like to put it on the same drive as my LTS Ubuntu version.
My dilemma is this: I'd like to be able to share the same /home partition no matter what drive or at least something to that effect if possible.
So for those partitioning gurus out there, what would you suggest? Split each drive in 2 equal sections? Can they share the same swap? Best way to configure boot?
I'm learning already that Fedora should be installed first because Ubuntu tends to recognize other distros much better than some others but I'd rather wait to see what you experts suggest.
Thanks for your time. It's much appreciated. :)
