Hi Travis

Yes, it is necessary to partition your hadr drive.

Preferably, a partition for W98, a partition (small
one) for linux SWAP, and at least one other partition
for linux. You may use more than one for linux. I use
one for swap, one for linux (all but /home), and one
for linux (/home -  where I put all my user stuff -
data etc that doen't need upgrading).

It's off to disk I go,
A bit or byte to read or write,
