The Disk Analyzer application looks great. Once my motherboard arrives I may install this... I usually stay away from such early releases though. I'll read up to see if there are any major bugs, and if not then we'll see how this works on my new desktop.

I've downloaded and made some attempt to get dual-booting configured on my system. My setup isn't all that complicated, but the initial attempt hasn't been successful:
I have two 320GB hard drives. I will have Windows on 50GB of the first drive, and the rest will be allocated to a software RAID array with LVM on top of that. I want to volume groups with logical volume (one for Ubuntu and one for Gentoo).
I've installed Windows, and I've been successful in using the Feisty CD to create all the needed partitions up to the point of the RAID array. Now that I have a RAID array I'm trying to create the LVM on top of that and it keeps failing with something about notifying the kernel of recent changes before going further (which it says requires a reboot). When I reboot, I see all my partitions and the raid array, but all that is next to the raid array is the number 0 (and doing anything with that causes all types of errors to show up on other listed partitions).
The only CD I've used so far to get my partitions/filesystems configured is the Feisty CD, so I'm not sure if my problem is just with that CD or if it will come up with others. Also, I'm not going to be able to find out until Sunday since I'm going out of town... I'll post more info on Sunday.
Looks like the problem mentioned in my above post is only related to the Feisty CD... I tried the same exact layout with the Edgy CD and had no problems configuring the filesystem like I wanted it. Right now I have Edgy installed with the latest Nvidia drivers, and I'm downloading the Quake4 Linux installer so I can see how everything works... so far so good though. I'm using nvidia-1.0-9742.
