    Hi All,

    I just found that (was posted only few hours ago):

    cpanel-redhat-enterprise3-install.sea (Tue Nov 11 22:15:59 2003)

    http://layer1.cpanel.net/cpanel-redhat-enterprise3-install.sea

    My question is as follow:

    I want to use RedHat 9 until the last minute possible (we still have about half a year to go) and I don't have a real added value that I can point a finger to and say that I need the RedHat ES version yet.

    I do need to upgrade the kernel in RH9 from the original 2.4.20 to 2.4.21 or 2.4.22 to support my new hardware and my question is: Does cPanel require or have a need for a specific kernel? Does it care? Will I experience any issues?

    I have not purchased the control panel yet, and before I go to great length of attempts, I want to be sure that I'm ready with my system to meet the needs of cPanel.

    Also, planning ahead for the partitioning of the system, I'm going to have 4 HD (3 of them in a RAID-5 HotSwap and one used as the boot drive).

    cPanel suggest the following scheme:

    My system is going to have 240GB of space on the RAID
    (120GBX2+1X120GB) plus the boot drive is also 120GB.
    Obviously I have lots of space to run and I would love to hear suggestions on how to partition the space accordingly and where to place the different partitions.
    /home is definatly going to be on the RAID as well as swap.
    The question is, where would I place the /usr and /var.
    /tmp I think I'll place on the RAID (I'm open to change that if I need).
    Nothing is configured as of yet as I've just assembled the parts together and installed RH9. I'm in the meadst of recompiling the kernel for RH9 to accomodate the RAID-5 card and have not partitioned the RAID or even the boot drive to make anything meaningful. I don't care to start from scratch (only an hour and 20 minutes to load RH9 with FULL install which is obviously not needed for a server).

    I know I loaded alot of info here, but I want to do it right the first time I'm actually going to run.

    Thanks for your comments about this.
