volume groups and linux setup

I want to slice up a  150GB hard disk that is mirrored in hardware  can someone recommend a good generic partition layout that I can add to a kickstart file.

I would like to use volume groups.  Please explain why you have used the recommended layout.  

Thanks

Hi

Last question I have a config from a server in work and it reads see below.  Would you know what this is all about.


part pv.100000 --size=8000 --grow

reccomended layout would really depend on the server use, for instance, if it's a web server you would likely allow a lot of space in /var/www, if it's a file server or mail server then this would also have a bearing on your layout.

for your last question the initial size would be 8gb but would then grow to fill the disk whatever that may be. you could use maxsize to limit this as in the example above.
