Ok my question is kind of detailed. I tried the new Ubuntu a month or two back, but when I installed it it could only see my SSD as a valid installation point. So I installed it on there, and it seemed to run ok.
My problem is my SSD is on the smaller side (64 GB), I also have a WD Black, and a Samsung Spinpoint (750GB each) with basically the exact same memory spin/data rate etc. So I did not like Linux being on the SSD. The way I have my drives partitioned is one has a Programs/backup partition, both of the 750 GB run a 5Gb virtual memory partition, the other 750GB is media and another Backup.
So over all I have 64GB SSD for Windows 7, 750GB WD 5GB VM\693.63 Media, 750GB Spinpoint 5Gb VM\ 393Gb Programs\ 300GB Backup. I got a copy of openSuse 11.3 and Linux Mint 9 on a dual side DVD. When I try to install either it only see's the SSD. I want to run openSuse 11.3 Again when I try to install either (I tried Mint when Suse could not see my other HD's), it only see's the SSD. The other two drives do not show up at all during the install no matter the format I make a new partition with?
So I am basically dead in the water unless I want Linux taking up space on my SSD?
