I have a RAID setup the manufacture says to install the OS then load the mainboard drivers.  What should I partition the drives for, its a mail server and I will want a 3 week set of logs that I can look at.  Also its Fedora 5.  Also what CD setup should I go with, ie Server, Workstation and or select packages myself?  IF that then what packages should I install?

are you sure that you want to configure a mail server or you just testing your learning skills. irrespective,  take fedora 5 (FC5) and select server.  during the install process, select "everything" under servers and applications and proceed.

coz, we still do not know what you want (postfix, sendmail ,etc) how many users you going to have, what other features and facilities you going to offer - like webmail, virus, spam cleaner etc.  

given the scenario, the above should do for now
