Hello. I am new to the forum and joined because of this focus on Return IL. I have read all documentation available with the Premium Version (the one I have), and prior to implementation, I am looking for any advice for the number of partitions that should be in place, and how data should be located within the partitions for an optimum install of Return IL. My machine is very close to a new install of WinXPPro, with almost all other software currently uninstalled, thereby allowing installs to be directed anywhere you recommend to achieve optimum operation of Return IL. I have Norton Partition Magic for creating new partitions, besides a 160gb drive on board my laptop, I also have an external USB drive with 1 terrabyte. It currently contains backup images of my on-board HD. I would appreciate any advice that you can provide including pointing me to other posts that may in themselves answer the questions about optimum configuration. Thank you!
