Replying to my own post.

Do I need to change partitions "a:" (currently part of volume tmp) and
"d:" (currently part of volume root)

Also with this configuration do I need to shrink the size of any of my
partitions. (I am unclear as to if I have 8k at the beginning of the
drive)
I can delete my current d: partition and make it smaller if that is
needed.

I just don't grok this yet :-(


thanks again for any help.
