The rest of this thread about booting off of the drive is somewhat irrelevant
to me since /boot is on a 40 GB drive in the same box. I bought this drive
so that I can dump a bunch of data to it. At the rate I use disk space, I'd
be surprised if I can ever fill half the drive unless I suddenly get bit by
the video editing bug and buy a digital video camera (not likely). I just
hated running out of space when I had something like a bunch of ISOs to
download, so I wanted to create a nice big directory where I can dump
downloads, music files, etc.
Sounds like I'm all set...partitioning now. :-)
