I want to install Fedora 17, already I have been using Ubuntu from past 2 years. For creating partition table, do we need to create the root in addition to the swap and home partitions?

The partitioning scheme is similar for all linux variants mostly. Please read:


I suggest you at least glance through the entire above mentioned documents before proceeding.

Personally, I create: a swap, a /home (so I can just mount it again and again when I install a new fedora version) and a / (for the rest). You can break it down even further if you require.

I did not understand the sentence, "you can break it down even further" Could you explain more on this? Normally I create 2 partitions one for enough space for installing ubuntu and another double the space as the size of ram. Can I create 2 partitions like this for fedora? or I have to create the root, boot..etc?
