Installing OPENSUSE 10.3 on a ThinkPad T61p
Experiences installing OpenSUSE 10.3 x86_64 on a T61 as a dual boot system with Windows Vista.
OpenSUSE suggested to shrink the windows partition to 60GB which was fine since I spend most of mytime in OpenSUSE. However, the linux partitions needed some changes from what was proposed as a default (everything under an extended partition) to ensure dual boot. After the windows partition, I chose:
- A primary partition of 100MB (Ext3) as /boot (check that "set partition to active" is flagged) to install GRUB
- An extended partition for the rest:
- Partition for /
- Partition for /home
