Preparing partitions

Contributed by: Michael Alderete
This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

When preparing partition space with a tool like fdisk, PartitionMagic, NT DiskAdministrator, or anything else, give the partition you intend to install BeOS to an intuitive name, like “BEOSHERE.” That way the BeOS Installer can put the name in the Install Onto: pop-up menu, and you can be sure you’re not blowing away your Windows 98 (or other) partition.
