"The installation program on Ubuntu 10.04 and Linux
Mint 9 are the same. And that's because Linux Mint is based on
Ubuntu. So if you install one, which involves a simple seven-step
process, you can use the same instructions to install the other.
"But being simple does not mean that the default partitioning
scheme, which creates only two partitions, will satisfy the
requirements of the system you wish to create. That's when a
fundamental knowledge of disk partitioning on a Linux system comes
in handy, and that's why, for those without that knowledge, this
guide has been written.
"The two partitions created by the Mint/Ubuntu installer are:
/dev/sda1 for the root file system directory and /dev/sda5, a
logical partition for swap. I assume that you are reading this
because you want to create separate partitions for the home file
system directory (/home), or for /usr, /var, /tmp, etc.
"So get your installation disk ready, insert it into your
computers optical drive, reboot, and let's get started."
