    Question is this possible ? different os install

    HI people

    i have a new server with a 160 gb hd...
    the hd is devided in 40 os/swap and 120 /home
    now the server has freebsd running as i was told this could handle better loads.. but it seems it can't do what i did with a server running fc 5 and less rams than this new one...

    so i want to change OS...

    now my question is can i for example partition the 120 gb in 80 and 40 gb and install from home with a terminal debian on that partition ?
    without help of the host ?

    after when it is booted into debian than delete the freebsd ?

    or do i need the host to install debian for me?

    thanks for your advice
