install rh 7.1 on 2 gb hd best way


Hi,
I want to install RH 7.1 on a 2 gb harddrive.
The machine is a :
Pentium 133, 80mb memory
This will be a Linux only machine so I really don't need dual booth.
I am using the Disk Druid in RH ,what would be the best allotment for space.
The following are my choices"

/
/boot
/usr
/home
/var
opt
/tmp
/usr/local

Which one of these is the swap ?

I have looked for advice on this subject in the forum here but everyone seems to have huge disk. And I can not figure out how to do this on a small drive.
Thanks

Welcome to LQ.

None of these is "swap" swap is a partition in itself. With a small drive I would also reccomend fewer partitions to give you more flexability but it is up to you.
