Needing advice

Post by Al Mell » Wed, 08 Sep 1993 00:05:00

Up until now I have been a dos user running a multline bbs and now want
to make the move to Unix and a decent bbs shell or whatever it is
called, excuse the ignorance I am just beginning the learning curve.

What I would like is some advice on the most user friendly bbs for
users, in public doman, shareware and commercial.  I will probably end
up starting with four incoming phone lines and expand to twelve.

any advice would be appreciated and also info on where to get some of
what you recommend.

1. need advice needed on partioning

I have a 2GB partition that I am upgrading my system with. When I first
setup Linux years ago I was new to Unix and so I put everything in one
big partition in /   Now I know that's a bad idea.
I intend to split up the 2GB as follows
/     100MB
/usr  800MB or 900MB
/var  100MB
/home 800MB
/tmp  100GB
Swap will be on another drive/partition
The machine is my home PC and Linux is now the primary OS.  MSWindows
has been relegated to online banking and games.  Are these reasonable
numbers or am I missing something?  What kind of numbers do you guys
have for your drives?  The distribution I have is Debian and the kernel
is v2.0.33
