IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

So


sda is your whole disk
sda1 is first FS which is mounted on "/" having size of 10 GB approx
sda2 is just a partition of 1 block (leave it)
sda5 is your last extended one which is being used by swap to see swap space use #free -m

sr0 is your dvd/iso image device
