    This is kinda crazy, but we had someone install redhat for us on a new server with two 60 gig hard drives.

    It seems they did not mount the /home partition instaed this is what they did.

    Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/hda1 ext3 3.9G 1.2G 2.5G 31% /
    /dev/hdb1 ext3 56G 33M 53G 1% /export
    none tmpfs 247M 0 246M 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/hda5 ext3 47G 688M 44G 2% /usr
    /dev/hda2 ext3 3.9G 107M 3.6G 3% /var

    I believe this is the correct partition:

    Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/hda6 ext3 494M 122M 346M 27% /
    /dev/hda1 ext3 30M 2.9M 25M 10% /boot
    /dev/hda7 ext3 59G 4.4G 51G 8% /home
    none tmpfs 502M 0 502M 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/hda3 ext3 5.8G 4.1G 1.4G 74% /usr
    /dev/hda2 ext3 7.7G 202M 7.1G 3% /var
    /dev/hdb1 ext3 37G 6.8G 28G 20% /backup

    My questionis, is there any way to change the partitions remotly or do you need to reinstall red hat?

    Thanks,

    James Gardner

    you have 120Gb ?

    Mm... I should use something like.
    60 Gb to /home (alone in a full physical disk)

    1 Gb to swap
    5 Gb to /
    50 Mb to /boot
    25 Gb to /backup
    10 Gb to /var
    5-10 Gb to /usr

    mm... maybe you already have some unpartitioned space ... that you can LEAVE unpartitioned .... ;)
    in case you need it ...

    Regards.

    If you don't mind or someone else has some input on what would be good for 1 - 40 gig hardrive.
