I wish to install to my 160 gb external hard disk, but it has already got four partitions. This is how my partitions are listed when I use the live CD
/dev/sdb /dev/sdb1 -- 100 mb (System Reserved partition) /dev/sdb2 -- 58 gb (this is where I want to install the ubuntu ) /dev/sdb3 --40 gb (contains some data) /dev/sdb4 --40 gb (contains some data)
So when I tried to split up the 58 gb partition in this pattern 56 gb (for ubuntu) and 2gb for the swap sapce. The 2 gb is now turned into unusable space instead of free space and I had done some google search on that, it said that only 4 partitions could be created including the primary and the logical. So how should I proceed here inorder to install ubuntu to my external hard disk? could someone please help me with this ?
Thanks, Varun Krishna. P
