    I have 2 hard drives, each approx 200 gigs each. I'm running CentOS 4.1 without X

    I allocated 4 gigs to the swap, 100 megs to /boot, the rest of the first HDD to /, and the entire second 200 gig drive is dedicated to /home

    The installation documentation for cpanel suggests that I should re-partition my drives because it does not match their exacting partition scheme... I wanna know how true that is... do I really need to repartition?

    Realistically speaking, the biggest problem that I could foresee is that the logfiles could fill up my first hard drive, and I'd have to manually go through and delete them... are there any other concerns that I should be aware of?

    Thanks in advance,

    -- Jason

    That partition scheme you have should be OK. It is best to use seperate partitions for atleast /var and /usr and /tmp, but would be OK without it.

    Go on, have a guess
    Yes, I agree, it should not be a problem at all keeping your partition scheme as you have it. Indeed, on many servers (for example VPS's) you can use a single / partition, though it's not usually recommended.
