I'm choosing between Xandros, Mandrake, Red-hat or Suse, in that order. Which works best with my NTFS 120 GB hard disk? I intend to also run XP-HOME on a partition, and set the drive as mentioned in: http://www.langa.com/newsletters/ My proposed setup is: 1. 8 GB boot-up partition, to be replaced as required from the Archived-Partitions, which has complete versions of the all operating systems. 2. 2 GB of "virtual memory" partition 3. 20 GB of DATA 4. 20 GB of program files (Windows) 5. 20 + 20 GB of archives, including the "Archived-Partitions" mentioned in 1. above. 6. The rest to have room for editing DVDs, etc. On each Windows partition, there is also a small "virtual memory" file as well. It speeds things up - I think, since its quicker to rename a file on the same partition, rather than "move" (copy & delete) it to another partition. Any comments welcome.
