Best way to partition HDD
I want some suggestions for a best way to partition HDD to install only two Linux Distro (no Windowz).
suppose that we have a 60 GB HDD, and we want to make one large partition for Slackware and one for Ubuntu with common swap space and with another free partition for storing some common data between Slack and Ubuntu,
let's say for :
Slackware ----- 40 GB for / (reiserfs)
Free Parition ----- 10 GB
Common Swap ----- 500 MB (reiserfs )
Ubuntu --------- 9.5 GB for / (reiserfs).
so my question is about wish is the best way from primary/extended point of view to make this,i don't want to mount anything like /home /usr/local as an independent partitions.
Any suggestions are welcome.
