I just read a good tip about partitioning for Ubuntu.
They suggest using GParted Live to partition the hard drive first. That sounds great!
I miss the option that Fedora has where you can delete all the Linux partitions and have it automatically create the new partitions. I don’t remember the options for sure, but I think you can only delete all the partitions or shrink the existing partitions. If I am reinstalling, I want it to leave my Windows partition alone and delete the Linux ones. Another great option would be to manually pick the partitions to delete and use the freed space to automatically create the partitions. Finally, another option that would be nice is to choose how much it shrinks the existing partitions.
