This systems has two 20 Gb drives hda and hdb.
hda is the primary drive and hdb is the secondary drive.
hda has two partitions one formatted to vfat32 and BSD/386 for windows and FreeBSD respectively.
The entire hdb drive is used for Linux and has four partitions /boot /home / and a swap.
The size of the boot partition should be a minimum of 75 Mb.
The size of the swap space should also have a minimum of 75 Mb.
A common problem when trying to create a working directly (/ /home /usr) is not being able to create one of a specific size.
Must create this boot partition before you create other partitions
