Ubuntu and Windows
Okay, I have two questions about Ubuntu.
First off, I decided to install Ubuntu and have a dual boot, because apparently it's god for an "emergency OS" or some such shit... but I think I installed the partitions wrong.
See, my Mentor set up the PC with like 10 partitions, I have two hard drives, and one of them had another Windows XP.
But when I installed Ubuntu, it got rid of all of my spare partitions! Now, I'm not devastated over losing my other XP - it had viruses anyway - but I wanted that extra disk space for big programs like Borland Delphi, Netbeans, Photoshop, Autocad - etc.
Basically, I want to get Ubuntu to just enough disk space for the OS and maybe 512MB to a Gigabyte of space leftover.
The odd thing is, I KNOW i had way more space before - i had ALOT. But I can only see like 35GB - and just ONE partition I remember had about the same - this is the GROSS TOTAL! I'm not positive, but I think the Linux is invisible to Windows...
WHAT MY MAIN QUESTION IS: How do I take space from Linux and give it to Windows, is there any certain procedure to do (like reformatting), and what programs can I use to do it?
The second question, I wiped that god damn dell clean (some Boot n' Nuke thingy) and I tried to put linux on.
The install is slower than Windows 95 with crappy hardware.
So... Any help on either of these two things is greatly appreciated!
