Thanks for your time.
So, you are suggesting that option B (starting from scratch) may be the easiest in the long run?
So I'd wipe it and start again. Do a custom install, creating the necessary partitions the first time around, and then do a second install straight away to the other partition I have created, leaving a third partition for any docs etc that I want to protect?
The hard disk on my notebook is 160Gb, what size and how many partitions should I create and what file structure should I use?
Should I also create a swap partition?
Ahhh . . . here we go again . . .
