mranim8Hi. Can someone help me with an installation question? I just downloaded 11.04 (x86) to put onto a freshly built file server. I want to use btrfs instead of ext4, so I go to configure the partitions manually. I have 5 disks (one system, 4 data). I can't create primary partitions on the data drives without adding a mount point, and I can't seem to specify my own mount point. Instead I'm given a list of standard directo08:10
