I gave that advice to someone once and during the re-install they chose
to format and the whole drive as "recommended" by the installer. It was
a while ago now but the experience of calming them down while explaining
it wasn't really my fault has kind of stuck with me (They had a backup
as it happens so all they lost was time). ;o)
