I'm getting in bit of flap setting up partitions manually for my NSLU2 normally i'd use the graphical installer and guided partitioning but it's no longer available so have to partition manually on another linux machine first. I'm using a 16GB flash drive and after many attempts came up with these partitions
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sde1 * 1 245 250864 83 Linux
/dev/sde2 246 4061 3907584 83 Linux
/dev/sde3 4062 14996 11197440 5 Extended
/dev/sde5 4062 4123 63472 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sde6 4124 14996 11133936 83 Linux
Does this look right? to be honest i'm not too worried how partitions are setup ie separate for home or all on one. As the per above i'm assuming
sde3? extended in which 5 and 6 fit in?
is this right? or can anyone else come up with a suitable partitioning scheme suitable for running on flash.
Any help would be appreciated i'm also on MSN on this address if it's easier to communicate over that.
