    I hope you don't mind giving me some advise on my partitioning set up since I am going to install cpanel whm. I have been searching for partitioning set up and am very thankful to have found your site. BUT, I am left puzzled why as setting up my partitioning in red hat 9 text mode, I was given this partitioning setup. Will you kindly be glad to offer assistance?

    Device Start End Size Type Mount point

    /dev/hda1 1 13 101m ext3 /boot
    /dev/hda2 14 274 2047m swap
    /dev/hda3 275 14437 111097m ext3 /home

    ..../dev/hda7 19538 19798 2047m ext3 /
    ..../dev/hda8 19799 19929 1027m ext3 /tmp

    This is for a 120GB Hard drive

    I appreciate hearing from you,

    I did get some advise to set up a 120gb hd as:
    / 2048
    /boot 100M
    /usr 8192M
    /var 8192M
    /tmp 1024M
    swap (x2 RAM, Max 2048M)
    /home fill to disk

    I tried to set up partioning in order as listed and recieved the result above...:confused:
