View Full Version : partitioning question

23rd August 2005, 06:33 PM
I want to setup a FC4 Software Raid 5 file server with 4 120G drives with most space for sharing via samba
is it ok to set up the partitions on each disk like this?:
/dev/hd$1 /boot 100M
/dev/hd$2 swap 128M (have 256M ram and 4*128M=512M swap)
/dev/hd$3 RAID rest of drive, with LVM on top with one partition - mount point / (root)
where $ is a,b,c,d

or should I partition the RAID VG into a / partition (~3GB) and some separate partition/mountpoint, i.e. /sambashare for all the files to be stored and taking up the rest of the room in the VG?
Suggestions are welcome.
