Re: Does Disk Druid erase current partition?



Disc Druid is fantastic. Tell it what partitions you
have, so that it generates the fstab for you, with the
mount ponts you want. You also have to tell it whether
to format that partition or not. Be very careful and
read all the options carefully. If you are squeamish,
don't set a mount point for your windows partition.
Add it to fstab and grub by hand later, once your
Linux is booted. Anyway, once you have entered the
options for grub in the installation program, push
next and it will ask you whether to format certain
partitions and you click on yes or no. It works great.
Just be very careful that you are completely aware
which partition is which, ie, /dev/hda1 is most likely
your windows partition (could be different in your
case, but generally windows refuses to exist anywhere
but the first primary partition of the first ide
drive. The rest of your system will all be ext3, so
there you are.).
