Unhappy Problem for RedHat 7.1 Custom-Class Partition

I am having problem while installing my RedHat 7.1. I have 128Mb Ram, around 8G Hard disk. I'm planning to setup a server. So I choose Custom-Class and Manually partition with Disk Druid for my installation. Does anyone knows what is the exact partition that I need for my computer (eg; /,/usr,/home... etc...) and how much memory for each partition? pls reply to []

That really depends on your needs. If you have an idea of how much room you will need for software and so on, then I would at least make a partition for '/' and one for '/home' that will make it a lot easier to backup the home directories and to move them if you ever need to. You'll also need a swap partition, 256Mb in your case would be about right.
