    Question Choosing Swap & Grub during installation

    Hi everyone,

    I have a few questions before I proceed with Back Track installation. Here what my hard-drive looks like :

    /dev/sda1 ntfs (XP)
    /dev/sda2 extended
      /dev/sda5 ext4 (Ubuntu 10.10)
      /dev/sda6 linux-swap
    1. Is there any way I can tell BT not to create any swap partition ? If I do it, then I'll just need to edit the /etc/fstab file once the installation is done right ?

    2. Is there a "best" place where to put the BT partition (inside or outside sda2) ?

    3. Can I tell BT not to install Grub ? I'd like to keep the one install by Ubuntu.

    4. Does BT supports ext4 ? Because it tells me that my sda5 is ext3 but it's not :P.

    Thanks a lot !

    If you install in sda2 you can use the same swap just update grub should solve it
