Adélie Linux System Installation supports creating new partitions on a disk, but it cannot remove or resize existing partitions.
You may need to consult your existing environment's documentation to determine how to correctly set up a multi-boot environment.</para>
<para>On most computers, Adélie Linux requires only a single partition, which will contain all of your data.
However, on some computers, you may need a separate boot partition, which will contain the boot loader software that your computer uses to start up.
If you already have an existing operating environment on your computer, you may need to consult its documentation to determine how to set up a multi-boot environment.
For more information, consult your hardware or firmware documentation, and the Installation Handbook section on disk partitioning.<!-- XXX TODO XREF TO THAT SECTION --></para>
<para>As noted in <xref linkend="ram_disk"/>, the disk space needed for an installation of Adélie Linux will vary based on your desired installation type.
You will also need additional room on your disk for your personal data files.</para>
