You say the level of the list is low, possible but How come you're an
expert. Were you born like that?
It is difficult to completely change for my part from Windows to Ubuntu and
know everything. I learned and while doing it made some big and stupid
mistakes, sorry if I wasn't born with the knowledge. I thought this list was
about helping each other if we can but maybe I am wrong.
I must say that as a non professional Ubuntu User this list helped me a lot
to get out of my problems when I couldn't find the answer on Internet. I
hope it will also help everybody else.
There was a question about Ubuntu being a Windows concurrent but there is no
question that without support Windows will win. So a little compassion for
the newbies who try their best.

I always partition manually, and have never had a problem with Ubuntu -
I haven't put /boot onto a separate partition since before Ubuntuexisted.
Having /boot in a separate partition has its own issues because grub
to know that the boot device is not the same as the root device. It'stoo
long since I did this to remember which options need to change inmenu.lst.
I am trying to forget how to have a boot partition. The boot
partition was needed when the older BIOS systems could not boot anything
beyond X gigibytes. This caused you to put all the boot partitions near
the start of the first hard drive. It was VERY confusing but it proved
Grub could do this.
The basic step is this. In menu.lst you use the boot partitions's
name for the main root like: root (hd0,3), and then you follow the
kernel information with another root=/dev/hdc4 which tells Grub where
the system is.
It works. But forget it because all new BIOS can see clear out to
1000 GB :-)
