    Thanks.

    How do I use it?
    I selected the hard drive, and I cant edit anything except number of partitions, I want one, and the size and name and format are all locked off.


    I want to install Linux on the other partition.



    Thanks.

    Alright.
    I got my external hard drive to get recognized on my Mac, how do I do a complete backup?

    And will I need my installation discs?

    I would strongly suggest using the "search" button at the top. Alot of what you want to know is found around already.
