I'm totally new to Linux. I'm trying to install RH 8.0 in a IDM eserver machine. The machine has 3 35GB hot swappable drivers.
I want to combine the 2nd and 3rd drive into one logical drive and load MySQL in it.
In the first drive i want to load Linux.
Is it possible to load like that ??
Also how do i partition thses drives. How much space should is give to each mount points.
Can i do something like this..
/boot -- 500MB
/ -- 500MB
/usr -- 2GB
/usr/local -- 2gb
/home -- 2gb
swap -- 2GB
/var -- 1GB
/tmp -- 1gb
and make a partition to load MySQL. I mean where will MySQL files go ??
