Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am working on installing CENTOS 5.4 as a cPanel server.
I am using the following partion layout below.
/boot -- 100 MB
/usr -- 8 GB
/var 8 GB
/home fill to disk
/tmp -- 1 GB
swap 2x memory (4000 mb for me)
/ -- 3 GB
And during the installation I get an error such as cannot continue install, you may be out of disk space and I know that this error has something to do with the partioning layout, I am also installing the server with a MINIMAL INSTALL.
( I personally think is has something to do with the partion / because it does not have enough space to install but 3 GB should be enough..and I need /home to fill the rest of the HD because that is where the cPanel accounts will be )
Below are my server specs that pertain to what I think the issue is that may help you troubleshoot.
80GB SATA II Hard Disk DriveSS
- Capacity (GB): 80GB
- Format: SATA II
- RPM: 7200
- Cache: 8MB
If anyone could please assist me on what is causing this issue, I would appreciate it.
Thank you so much.
