I'm new... but, i want you to help me... I want a Triple-boot, Windows 7, Ubuntu 12.04 and Fedora 18.. or 19...and i found this post (question...(?)
and it is great, BUT i think it would be better if i dedicate some space to the SWAP... I have a 1TB HDD...so, here is my plan:
I want 200GB for Windows 7, another 200GB for Ubuntu 12.04, other 200GB for Fedora 18 (or 19, whichever is more stable) AND the other 400GB -pay attention- to use as my files space... i mean, use those 400GB to save my files, music, images and so i can use them in any of the 3 O.S. do you follow me?... so, when i play games in Windows i can see my photos of the last Christmas, and when i'm working on Ubuntu y can see the SAME photos of the last Christmas, and when experimenting with fedora (18 or 19 lol) i can see the SAME photos of the last Christmas.
BUT i want to tell me that if it is a good idea to give some space to the SWAP... i read in the same link (How do I triple-boot Ubuntu, Fedora and Windows 7?) at the end that it is possible to have the SAME swap for Ubuntu and Fedora, but i don't really understand because i understood that it is convenient to have the DOUBLE SWAP space of your RAM memory, i mean, i have 4 GB of RAM, so, it is recommendable to have 8GB in SWAP...
So, are 2 things:
1 - The partition of my HDD to work fine with the 3 O.S and the space for my files.
2 – The specifications for the SWAP memory...
I want to accentuate that the space its not a problem, remember that i have a 1TB HDD, so i can give a lot to the SWAP, but i don't really know how much it is correct, maybe if i give it a lot of space it would be an error and the system(s) crash... i dunno. So, please help me... i'm very eager to install them.. ALL THE 3 S.O.
