I have a Compaq server with 40 GB and 80 GB hard disks. I plan to use the machine like this:
40 GB HDD
20 GB - Windows
17 GB - Linux partitions: Boot, Swap and the "/" partition.
80 GB HDD
80 GB - Oracle Applications
What I'm wondering about is this:
Is it a good idea to have the Boot, Swap and "/" partitions on one disk, on a disk different from what I plan to use for Oracle Apps? Would there be performance issues?
Should I have Linux installed on the same hard disk as the hard disk used for Oracle Apps? (but I need 80 GB ONLY for Oracle Apps).
If this is a bad idea, what would be the most feasible solution? I need both Windows and Linux. And I need 80 GB for Oracle Apps.
