i'm running win2k and i am thinkin about to set up a linux partition.
i did not convert to ntfs file system, all my partitions are fat32.
i have used partition magic for years but never had to do with linux partitions,
can someone tell me what linux swap and linux ext2 are, which partitions
i will need and what the minimum discspace for these partitions are?
thanks in advance :)

The swap space is used for disk memory and the recomended size is twice you ram. ext2 is the format for the linux file system.

Once you have a partion for linux, The installer should set those two partitions for you.

Use ext3 if possible, the journalizing file system. It's much faster and more reliable.
