Well, first of all I want to said that since Im using Linux for a years, I dont have any idea if Linux could have more than one partition like windows (well in my computer we can see Local disk C:, Local disk D: and more). Anyway after I saw this shot, I start to believe Linux can do that so (Foolish Linux User I amoO ).
Just want to ask of how to make multiple partition in Linux since I just experience multiple partition in windows by now.

Managing partitions in Linux is easy, just use the command "cfdisk" in the terminal window. It's just the same as "fdisk", but with a better interface. Btw, what are you going to do with your partitions in Linux? I have one for "/", one for "/home" and one for Swap.

you can pretty much have a dedicated partition to any folder you want....includung (but not limited to) /home, /root, /boot, and /swap

pretty simple really...just edit fstab for it to mount automatically at startup, or manually mount it using 'mount'

Usually, I installled Linux with just "/" partition. If I could have more partition, it better to save file since my hdd is 80gb.

Well I guess certain distro automatically edit fstab so it doesnt bother my time.
