Partition Cheat Sheet

Last dog watch, 3 bells (7:43 pm)

Just a word of advice to any UN*X/Linux people out there. I have done this for a while now, but forgot about it until today (when I needed it), when it saved my bacony pirate pigu:

Take the important contents of your /etc/fstab file and write it on a sticky note. Stick that to your hard drive in the computer. Two years down the road when you don't remember what your partitioning table looks like and you have a crash like I did today, it will save you tons of trouble. Here's what mine looks like:

/dev/sda1 /boot  ext2
/dev/sda2 swap
/dev/sda3 /  XFS
