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.
