I am going to install linux on an older Athalon powered IBM Aptiva computer.
I was thinking of installing Kubuntu 6.06 Dapper because I don't know if the
newer versions would work on an older computer. ( If it is possible to use a
newer version, please advise me ).
The problem is, that I have an older 80Gig drive that I couldn't access with
Gparted. I was forced to put the drive in an xp box and use partition magic
just to access the drive. Now I have it back in the Linux box and I can
access the drive, but the program is now asking me what label I want to use.
The two appropriate choices are msdos, or GPT, is it OK to use gpt? Will
Kubuntu 6.06 be able to read it?
