Thank you for guiding me through this. Your explanation has been impeccable
and helpful. I am backing up (mirroring) all my files at the moment,
preparing for the big step.

I am not sure what you mean by "next to each other", so I took a screenshot,
which will make more sense to you than it does to me:


I do not mind formatting the Windows partition as it is now obsolete.

At this stage, I don't mind what path it will be mounted under. I'd just be
cheerful having another 25 GB of RW filespace.
