I have an Asus eeepc 901 which previously had Windows XP installed - I'd like to replace this with Ubuntu 14.04 now that XP is out of support.
The eeepc model that I have has two SSD drives - one 4GB and one 8GB. When I get go to install Ubuntu, it shows the 4GB drive as the first drive.
It shows the following devices:
/dev/sda 4034 MB /dev/sdb 8069 MB
I've tried installing Ubuntu on the 4GB drive with the 8GB drive for /home and swap. But although it ran, it was crippled by lack of disk space.
I thought about installing /root on the 8GB drive, but I get a message saying that the partition cannot be outside the disk.
My question is, what would people recommend as options for installing Ubuntu on this configuration? And how do I do it using the graphical installer? I have no knowledge of linux installations, so please keep it simple for me. I just want a easy-to-use OS for my netbook computer to give it a few more years life.
