Hi, I am trying to learn about Native Ubuntu Linux and I would like some guidence please. I down loaded Win 32 Disk Imager for windows to allow me to write the rootfs image to my sdcard using my laptop, which went ok.
Can some one confirm what I have done is ok please.

If you can boot from SD card - all right)) Your sd card should already be partitioned and rootfs image should be moved to first linux partition. I'll add into howto "windows" version as soon as possible.

I didn't partition my sdcard for linux I just wrote the rootfs image straight to it.
Can you tell me how I partition my sdcard for Linux please.
Update: I found a program called Easeus Partition manager is this ok and what sizes/formats do my partition's need to be. Thanks

I think you can use BootICE. Select your SD --> Parts Manage --> ReFormat usb disk --> USB HDD mode (single partition) --> ... Also, I think you need to set partition ID (by Change ID button in Parts Manage menu)

Please, describe the process in more detail, if you will succeed.

Thanks will try that later. Just want to confirm what format and what size to partition to.

Format? Ext4, but if you search partition id - it is 83 - Linux.
Size: I have 8018MB sd card (img size = 7829504 blocks = 8017412096 bytes)
