I'm prepping my pc to install RH 5.1. I have all of the hardware identified,
irq'ed, dma'ed, etc. from an existing install of NT4 ws.....
I'm running a P200, 64mb sys ram, 4mb video ram, ps2 mouse, standard kb, ide
cd, sb16 sound, isa 3c509 and external USR 33.6k. Hardware aside, can anyone
suggest the partitioning names and sizes that would make the best use of the
2 - 1.6 gb hard drives I am going to use in this system? I still don't know
how much room to devote to / or /usr/src to make sure that I'll have enough
room to download, compile and install software as time goes on.
I'd really like to keep the number of partitions down since this is a
one-user (me) box that will be used (eventually) as a web server and, quite
likely, a database (for dynamic web pages) server and a mail server. I am
familiar with the ethernet and network install, the Apache install, the
Samba install, X install from a previous installation and sndconfig. I just
wasn't sure that I had properly configged the system for the best use of the
available disk space.
Thanks in advance for any info or suggestions....
