To start ...........
Will the Pardus 2011b installer allow me to take the appropriate measures?
Yes. (< this a short answer)
Figured I could save myself some time and trouble by asking people who know the Pardus installer a lot better.
Any help will be met with gratitude! Thank you.
I will try.......
In screen "Add Users" > select Advanced for UID and more....
In screen "Partition" > select "create Custom Layout" > etc...
(see also this remark
about this Beta GUI compared to the P2009.2 GUI
In screen "Configure Bootloader" > Advanced settings > select the partition where Pardus is installed.
I hope this short manual will answer your questions.
But remember: This is only a Beta version
and will show some problems.
