I partitioned them manually.
I have 3 harddrives, 2 in a raid array that holds my xp install, but I configured my sabayon and ubuntu installs to run off of the third harddrive. They don't even know that I have the raid array, as I boot into XP by changing the boot order of my harddrives in my bios.
I have a 500 gb harddrive split into a 390 gb NTFS partition that I can access from both XP and my linux installs.
Then with the remaining space I have a boot partition and swap each for Sabayon 3.4f and Ubuntu 7.10.
Here is my grub.conf
- Code: Select all
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,4)
# kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel real_root=UUID=0709f714-507b-46e9-ae30-2202ef1b8482
# initrd /boot/initramfs-genkernel

I had to manually edit it in order to recognize my Ubuntu install. At first it was just the Sabayon entry, but I copied and pasted the Ubuntu portions from the grub.conf in my Ubuntu installs's /boot/grub/ directory.
