apparently, determining how 'best' to partition a drive is a bit of an art.
because i followed the advice given in the handbook, i found my
curiosity piqued by your comment. i was wondering if you would be so kind
as to share the reasoning behind your stated view?
i know that you're a busy fellow, so feel free to ignore this message. if
you are going to humour me, i won't be offended by tersely worded reply.
yet another possibility is that you post your thoughts on this with the
list. i'm sure that such a message would be of interest to other newbs and
might even generate an interesting discussion, without (i hope) polluting
whichever way, thanks for your time.
