    Default basic redhat 9 partitioning question

    Hi all
    I'm setting up a new install of rh9 to act as a server on a primarily winxp
    network (of 7 machines).
    It's a dual P3 500 with about 768MB ram
    The primary disk will be 20gb with two other disks - 30gb and 20gb There are
    two users and we do a lot of graphics/web/video work.
    I plan to use the defaults for the linux install paths like / and /root and
    so on, 2*RAM for /swap etc. I want to create a mount point like /clients for
    all our client data on one of the other drives, and maybe put /home on
    another drive as well, how do I do that? Can I just use Disk Druid during
    install, e.g. create a new partition called /clients and select the drive I
    want it on?

    cheers

    Yes. During install you can use disk druid to do exactly what you want.
    One thing, if you tell it to automatically partition for you, then if you
    go and make changes, it will STILL automatically rearrange partitions on
    you. You might want to try auto, make note of the suggested sizes, then
    select back and select manual.

    Yep, you can set this while installing. However RH 9 updates will
    fade out soon (AFAIK 04/2004), you'd better take a look at
    fedora, RH ES 3.0 or another distro.
