I'm using Lubuntu 11.10.
Here is my hard disk. I have two partitions mounted,
As you can see I have a lot of free space in the middle (yes, I wanted that).
Now I'd like to use that free space to create some new partitions and install many distros on each one.
So I have two mayor questions:
1. Should I create a logical (or it would be extended) partition there, using the total free space and after that could I divide it into maybe 5 or 6 partitions? I'd like to have something similar to this:
sda1 # already there sda3 # new sda4 # new sda5 # new sda6 # new sda2 # already there
I don't if the names would be correct.
2. Suppose that I'm installing Ubuntu on the first new partition (lets call it
sda3). During the process I'll need to choose where to install the GRUB (or boot loader?!)
Should I install it on
sda3 instead of
sda so I'll be able to keep my current GRUB and only update it after to see the two distros installed?
