    Hi Guys.

    Okay first off. I have searched the forum for answers to my queries but so far to no avail.

    I realise these questions are OS related, but i feel this is the best place for them to be answerd.

    Server
    Dual Xeon 64bit 3.0gig
    4gig pc3200
    2x 250gig SATA drives running in RAID mirror mode.

    Operating system.
    CentOS 4.2 x86

    Here lies my queries.

    1.(a) Partitions. Please can someone confirm the correct/your recommendation for the partition sizes on the 250gig drive. (b) Semi stupid question, but im assuming Cpanel would like the OS installed on the "/" partition, and that the GRUB should go in there too - not in the "/boot" partition.

    2.(a) Package Selection - Will the standard server selection be okay? If not what should i install.
    (b) Should i install gnome/kde/xwindows/any graphical interface?

    I'd really appreciate some advice here guys. Dont really want to fly in blind and pay the price later.

    Thanks very much.

    Matt

    i would do this partition scheme

    /boot 100meg
    /tmp 2 gig mount nosuid,noexec
    swap 8gig
    / rest of it

    do a minimual install of centos

    then do a cpanel install

    cpanel will disable the GUI interface so no need to install it

    also the cpanel install script will install all modules and dependencies it requires without user intervention
