Need some advice for migration
I'm planning to migrate to Linux, maybe dual-boot... not sure yet :)
Here's my current HD config:
- 160 GB HD as pri IDE, splitted into 30GB for winXP (don't laugh;)
and 130 GB data (music etc) filled to the rim...
- 60GB HD as sec IDE, with my documents etc... also filled to the rim...
I ordered a 500GB HD because I need more space, and now I have the brilliant idea why not move to linux, let's see what that's all about:)
I will probably want to install Linux on the new 500GB disk, along with most of the data. And I will probably keep the 160GB too. And I need all of my data.
What partitions would be best for me to make on those two disks, how do I get all my data to Linux partitions? What would be a logical way of partitioning the drives? I have no clue of what partitions are needed and what their sizes should be.. Is there anything else I should think of first?
I have just regular files: mp3, video like .avi etc, pictures, .doc openoffice.org and M$ office, .pdf and .rar and a few .zips.... so nothing too exotic I think
I've just DLed Kubuntu and OpenSuSE Live disks, not sure which one I like more yet.. Plus I don't have my new disk just yet (it's been ordered).
Can anyone give me some advice?
