I used to define, while partitioning my hard disk drive, mount points, file systems (ext2, ext3,reiserfs, fat32...), etc.
How to partition correctly my hard disk when installing Pardus ? It seems I don't have more choice than "pardus system file" (/) and "user files" (/home).
But /usr, /var, /, /usr/local, /tmp, etc. ?
Thanks for help !

It appears Pardus uses ext3.

Ext3 : Fine, but how may I do ? I would like to keep my partitions unchanged, with their mount points.

There is an option to manually set the mount points and you have the option to format or not to format the partitions .

Format or not to format the partitions : yes, I have seen this option.
But I didn't seen the opportunity to choice the mount points.

If you have already installed you should be able to edit fstab and mtab to set your mount points. I am not sure if there is a utility to assit doing this.

I have forgotten a problem. Pardus refuses my partition / because it weighs just 1 GB (I have also partitions /usr, /var, /usr/local, and  /boot, /home, /tmp,  plus another partition /dat).
If I merge /, /usr, /var to obtain a bigger /, after installing Pardus, I'll not retrieve my separate partitions. Because one don't defragment under Linux, I choosed to define separate partitions, with differents functions and contents more or less stable.

Is it better to modify the installer of Pardus, to avoid this kind of problem ?

I am going to try this way : I merge my ancient partitions /, /usr  in a new partition /, but keep the other partitions unchanged.

Thank you for lighting remarks and your precious help.

Yes, my little partition  / don't include /usr, /var, /boot, etc.
For Pardus, / contains all these subpartitions.

Did you manage to create a bigger partition?
