    Im changing the stock 60gb for a 120gb drive.

    not sure what partioning to use (does bootcamp allow you to have more than 2 yet?)


    i was thinking 50gb formatted as NTFS (XP, maybe Vista if i bother with it)
    45gb for OSX

    the leftover space as FAT32 for a shared data partion.

    that should give me enough space to load my music/games onto my macbook perticually as some of them take several GB thesedays

    (yes i know the GMA950 is rubbish for gaming, however for RTS games like dawn of war it plays them ok and i hate playing shooters on laptops anyway ;) )

    Just out of curiosity, mind linking me to the HDD you're replacing it with?

    Apparently, my HDD is hosed, and thus I can't partion. I need a bigger HDD anyways, so...
