Alright, here's the deal.
Don't ask me about my reasons for installing Mac OS X on this notebook, or how, please. I just need help with partitions.
I have an img file that I would like to use
dd onto a partition on my harddrive.
However, I have no idea where to begin with creating a new partition, shrinking my current partition, and making a third one as well.
Currently, I have GParted installed, and it tells me that I have /dev/sda1, which is my ext partition, /dev/sda2, which is my extented partition, and /dev/sda5, a child partition to the extended partition, which is called "linux-swap".
I want to create two more. One for music, which would have to be about 15gb large, and one for my installation of Mac OS X. I have a pre-built .img file (6.0gb) of Mac OS X Tiger that I would like to use for this.
Once I create the music partition (which I would like to do first), I would drag all of my music onto this partition, and tell Amarok (under Ubuntu Linux) to read my music from there. Then, I would delete my /home/alex/Music/ folder, to free up that 10gb of space.
Then, I would create my 15gb partition for Mac OS X. After that, I would use
dd to dump the image file onto the partition.
Just one problem -- How? I need instructions for shrinking /dev/sda1, as well as creating the other two partitions, and also how to dump my hard drive image onto the final-created partition.
And, how would I ask GRUB to display this operating system, once installed? Would it automatically come up?
Thank you, very much so, in advance.
