Hi. new to linux and need help with the partitions. Just looking for what YOU would do if it was you.
5GB hard drive. 256MB ram
no custom kernel work to be done (so minimal /boot RH8 install suggests 103mb!)
No X windows at all
As few apps as I can.. I only need
Whatever else is required in a minimal install
VAST majority of storage needs to be in /home
The goal here is to make /home as large as possible but I don't want to compromise system performance (or security if that's an issue) by making other parts too small.
This is what RH8 suggests:
/dev/hda1 /boot 103mb
/dev/hda2 /usr 2813mb
/dev/hda3 /home 1026mb
/dev/hda5 / 509mb
/dev/hda6 /var 768mb
/dev/hda7 (Swap) 509mb
Thanks for your input!
