I am a bit surprised, I thought mu current choices were as advised. What
would you not suggest.

Shoot, I have always been affected by the recommendations of the experts.
Until now, I have not used my own ideas much at all. I have been so
I may have changed a bit since yesterday, but my new HDD comes tomorrow
morning. So here is what my current plan is.
Using the new 1TB HDD, I am going to format the drive with 40 or 50gb's as the
boot partition. I am going to set swap to 9gb, because of something Sascha
said. Then I am going to create a partition for the balance called /home.
I am going to set the configuration so that the OS and applications save all
data to the /home partition, including email and bookmarks, and anything
relating to art programs--all applications that required saved data.
Next, I am going to move all important data from my current HDD to the new
drive. Then I am going to look for some missing folders that I think may
still be on the drive, but that I have lost somehow. Once I am convinced
there is nothing worth saving from my current drive, I will format it and name
it /backup. That is all it will be used for.
As far as the 200gb IDE drive is concerned, I plan to pause until I get more
advice on virtual machines. Is there anything wrong with this plan? TIA
