Welp my friends its security, don't want someone to setup their partitions insecurely to where they could mess up their harddrive, or make a lousy filesystem in the end


For real though someone at my ircd showed me a nice link, and i figured id share it with you all.


information on partitions in linux, and as thet title says "Some words about partitions, Linux way of accessing (E)IDE disks, Linux way of using partitions, and some other talk.."

Note to people that don't use the search engine at ao, this is the time for you to bookmark this before you post another random question about installing a linux or variant, and how to setup your partitions.. it happens alot here.
