[SOLVED] Trouble installing on partitioned space
All of my HDD space was devoted to Windows Vista. From that, I partitioned off 10GB of 'free space' to install Ubuntu 9.0.4 on.
I simply don't know how to install Ubuntu on this 10GB of "free space" it sees.
-I can choose a "side by side" install, but sliding the bar over the "Free Space" only enlarges my Vista partition (which I fear would cause i irreversible damage/data loss).
-I've read that "largest continuous free space" does not include the space I had partitioned off from Windows.
-The "manually" option seems my best choice, but I have NO IDEA what file system to use or what to set aside for swap(?) usage...
Basically, I set aside 10GB from my HDD from Windows and I'd like to use that space to install Ubuntu on.
I'm totally new to Linux and this is my first experience on it. I've been trying to read up more, but I'm having a hard time knowing where to start or get enough of a foundation so I don't get lost in translation every 5 seconds :T.
