I have a 200GB drive, 78.6GB left on that drive. I want a 40GB partition out of the 78.6GB, leaving 38.6GB I have been using Partition Magic 8.0 to do my paritioning. I tryed making a 40GB Partition, but when I load the Ubuntu CD, and go into the installation, everything gets complicated. Ubuntu needs, 3 different things and has all kinds of weird names. Can anyone explain, how do I simply choose that 40GB parition for my Ubuntu. From within Partition Magic 8.0 it shows this on the details of the drive.. Partition - Type - SizeMB - Used MB - UnusedMB - Status - Pri/Log Main Drive (C: ) - NTFS - 150,766.2 - 110,180.6 - 40,585.6 - Active - Pri (*) - Extended - 40,113.5 - 40,113.5 - 0.0 - None - Pri Ubuntu (l: ) - NTFS - 40,113.4 - 65.4 - 39,948.0 - None - Logical What is the (*) part of the drive, and when I try installing Ubuntu, I can't seem to really find any of these. Should I use the Partitioner build within the Ubuntu install?
