    Default BT4 install with only 2 primary partitions

    hi everybody,

    A lot of new laptops come with 2 primary partitions preconfigured.
    1 for Windows and 1 for the recovery of that Windows system.
    So how about we create an installation guide (like the excellent original guide for 3 partitions on a clean disk)

    harddrive = /dev/sda
    existing windows partitions are /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2

    I think the beginning is pretty similar to the instructions
    for 3 partitions, but if you could double check this, that would be
    greatly appreciated.

    fdisk /dev/sda
    n
    p
    3
    size : minimum 2 x Ram size for linux swap e.g. +4G (if you have 2GB of RAM)
    n
    p
    4
    size : whatever you want your backtrack partition to be
    t
    3
    82 (set partition 3 to linux swap)
    a
    4 (set partition 4 to become active)
    w


    How to complete this, i am a completely in the dark.
    any help is greatly appreciated.
