Good answer sparky. Just one additional thing banter. Although you can change your mind later and use something like Partition Magic - it's easiest if you plan ahead and decide about whether or not you want multiple partitions and if so what size, and what file system(s) you'll be using. Setting up your hd properly prior to installation is just better & easier than changing it later.
