Who here hates recovery partitions as much as I do. What's worse, I know what happens when the disk fizzles out and I am one to try things that makes that happen sometimes. Also, I want to get my recovery partition onto several CD-Rs so I can later rebuild and restore it if I need to change disks, reformat, etc.

I recommend getting the disk configured the way you want it, and doing a GHOST (or other imaging utility) of the full configuration so you have a starting point. Then, you can just nuke the recovery partition and use the space for something more useful. :)

I just demonstrated why I hate recovery partitions. I just had a disk virus and I quickly lost the recovery partition. The only way for me to get my system stabilized overnight was to completely vaporize everything (all partitions) and install another OS (which was being hurt bad before I did that). Just for that, I'll vote again. :angry2:
