having problems trying to understand what is meant by swapping and mount point?trust me , i know nuts about Linux.....slow me =(
I know that swapping means moving bits and data required by the CPU to and fro from the Virtual memory and Mount points are points which programs mount onto each other?
Damn confused now about this isuue...can anyone of you please kindly explain a bit of this to me. It would be greatly appreciated. +) thanks !
As well as a techincal questions. My Company PCs are windows-based(it sucks !) and i am trying to get a Linux server. The problem is , I have a standalone PC which i want to use as a Linux server to support 120 users. I have 2 40GB HDD and what type of partitioning scheme should i use? as in mount point or swap?? or both?? (CONFUSED again...)
I understand that Linux has many partitions(compared to Windows FAT32) and how much should i set the size for which partition?
These are directory but does it means that they are seperate partitions too>?
I know this is very basic quesitons to you guys out there.. And i sincerely(touch my heart) need some help and explanation here..Will appreciate it very much(truly) if i can get some answers from your experts...Thank You
Yours Sincerely and Truly
