I am going to reformat my system and I was wanting to put linux on it(Fedora Core 4), with windows. I've got a 160GB hard drive. I was wondering what a good partitioning scheme you all suggest. I was thinking of something like this(to give you an idea of what I had in mind):
boot(Linux)...5GB
swap(Linux)..1GB
root(Linux)...9GB
windows...........................15GB........NTFS
games/applications...........10GB........NTFS
data, music, movies, etc....115GB......FAT32
install programs................5GB.........NTFS

notes: I have the data, music, movies, etc partition FAT32 so both the windows and linux oss can read and right the files on it.

I have the install programs partition so I don't have to redownload the prgrams when I have to reformat and install windows.


So does this make any sense? Any and all suggestions/help is greatly appreciated, and thank you in advance.

don't need a boot partition anymore that i know of.

In that case, you'll have 5Gb left over to put elsewhere. Leave it all as is, but give your Data, Music, Movies, Etc.... Partition the extra 5 gigs
