I am new to Linux, and my knowledge for setting up partitions is limited.
Anyhow, in the installation menu I tried using the setting "Use the entire disk" to install Fedora 11 on my hard drive. Whenever I choose that option the installer runs for a little bit and then stops, reports an error and reboots my system.
I have tried setting custom partitions and the installer works, but I do not know if I setup my partitions correctly. I deleted the LVM stuff and I used these partitions...
/boot (Ext3 500 mb)
swap (3000 mb)
/ (Ext4 rest of free space)
Do I need any other partitions? Do I need to adjust the size of the partitions? Also, what is the LVM and do I need it?
Lastly, and maybe more importantly, is Fedora usable by Linux novices? I should probably ask that before I go to the trouble of fully installing it.
