Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Partitioning advice

Good day, all,

I've just acquired a 40 gig drive from work to add to my 80 gig at home. I am planning to install XP Pro and Ubuntu (Dapper Drake). I am interested in opinions for how I should set up partitions. Here's what I'm thinking of, please tell me if you consider it a good idea:

on 80 GB HDD:
50 GB for XP and apps (games, etc.) formatted NTFS
Remainder of disk in NTFS for data (pictures mostly)
on 40 GB:
10 GB for Ubuntu
Balance of disk formatted fat32 with music on.

Thoughts?
