I guess partition byte boundaries wasn't an issue back when 10.04
11.04 and the current tools like gparted, etc. do automatically
Thanks for your help compdoc.
Would this be feasible?
Get an 11.04 or later install CD,
begin the install including partitioning
and abort the install as the screen with all the info you configured
comes up just before the install starts?
Then reconfigure the drive with a 10.04 LTS CD
in the usual manner. I intend to use 10.04 LTS until it's EOL.
I have gparted but am unfamiliar with it's use
but I've done a lot (too many) of Kubuntu installs.
gparted is exceptionally easy and safe to use. Nothing happens when you
click...it justs places your action in a pending list, which is always
visible. Until you tell it to run the pending items, nothing happens.
If you panic just quit.
