Redhat 6.1 partition and setup
Posted on 1999-12-25
Just got RH 6.1 and have a few questions before I start.... I installed a much older Redhat version on another system several years ago so not a complete newbie but have forgotten much. First, here's my system setup as it is:
Abit Bx6R2 mobo
Celeron 300a @ 464 mhz
256 MB Mushkin PC100 RAM
IBM 12.9 GB HD 7200 RPM (one partition, contains Win98 SE, 7 GB free space
Leadtek S320 II video (TNT2)
Kenwood True 52 cd
RWD RW2224 cd writer (support not really needed in Linux
Onstream DI 30 tape drive
USR 56k Sportster internal modem
KF 230TX Fast ethernet card (network support not really needed in Linux)
SB AWE 64 value sound card
Anyone see any hardware problems?
Next, partitioning. I have Partition Magic 5.0 and plan to use it to set up my partitions. I also plan to use Boot Magic as loader (so I know LILO must be installed in /root). How do you recommend I set up my partitions? I had planned on using about 3 GB total for Linux.
Thoughts? Lots of points for detailed answer!
