only comments (and please take these with a grain of salt, I'm really really new):


- looks like gparted as opposed to qtparted is now the supported program for System Rescue. but the interface was really simple.


- Apparently, some Windows (?) systems come with the FAT16 already on, and some with Intel only support 4 partitions. I'm not sure what FAT16 does, so I left it and the existing NTFS on, added the Linux ext3 as a second primary partition, and combined Linux swap and FAT32 as extended. Is there any danger to doing this? Seems to run fine so far...
