Partitioning strategies for install
Posted on 2004-03-27
I'm trying to figure out the best solution/strategy for partioning my server for Red Hat Linux 9.0 install. I have three hard (40gig each) drives set up for RAID 5 and I want to install RedHat Linux 9.0. I will be running Apache2 webserver, Jboss application server, mySQL database, CVS (Concurrent Versioning System) for Software Developers. First off can I partition this set up (3 drives + Raid 5)? Second, how should I partition my drives? i.e. / ~1gb, /var ~ 1gb, /boot ~ 512mb, /home, /usr etc...
