OK, I'm stuck already. Should I do install them side by side, or specify partitions manually? The only walkthrough I've found is for Ubuntu
It seems that if I choose install them side by side I'm given a slider that lets me choose 60GB for the Mint install. This seems like the logical choice.
But, that link says to make sure to choose specify partitions manually at which point I'm taken to a screen with my three existing partitions.
/dev/sda1 fat16 57MB
/dev/sda2 ntfs 10737MB
/dev/sda3 ntfs 309276MB
I'm given the option to change, delete or revert. Clearly I'll be trying to partition the larger one, but is this the way? If I hit change on sda3 I can specify a 169292MB partition, but then do I still choose Ext3 journaling file system? Isn't that name taken already. Should I do ext4 journaling file system? Confusing... Is mount point "/" still correct?
Is it possible that's just an older tutorial, or is Mint just setup differently?
Sorry for all the questions. I'm going to hold off doing anything for now. This is the first time I've done anything like this and I really don't want to screw it up.
