* Partition sizes <!-- separate section, or combined with schemes? -->
* File systems
* LVM

How does btrfs fit into that? It deals with storage pool / volumes, but it's still a filesystem. Or is it a too focused / advanced topic for this article?

SSD?

Why does this article refer specifically to SSD?

resize existing Windows parts?

If a machine already has Windows installed, is it possible to resize that partition to make room for Linux? Or is a complete reinstall necessary? ⇔ ChristTrekker 18:47, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Fantastic, thanks. I was hopeful the Arch ISO would contain the required tools, but I guess it's not that much to make a second CD. ⇔ ChristTrekker 20:15, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
