Yea Ive tried a few different things in order to get it to let me. I really wish I could take a picture or screen shot to post as its rather odd that it would only give me those options and no other while in graphical mode, yet allow ext3 in text Disk Druid.
On a side note im still having a hard time figureing out this whole mount deal.
To clearify, I havent the slighest clue where the programs I will be installing on the computer actually go, making it much harder to size this drive and mount it correctly. Ive read over a few different pages that cover how to size various mount points like this one
and this one
etc. If I knew for sure the assumptions ive made after reading these pages were true id feel much better about clicking the next button
The gist of what Ive read ive made the following inferences:
/var shouldnt be on the same partition as / neither should /home
swap should be double the size of system ram
/usr needs to be sized fairly big since this is where all the packages im installing will go
Based on these assumptions and knowing that im using a 2.5 and 2.4gb I was hoping to get a critique on this arrangement:
/dev/hda1 /boot 51mb
/dev/hda2 / 299mb
/dev/hda3 swap 130mb
/dev/hda5 files (to hold files to be served on an internal ftp) 1949mb
/dev/hda6 tmp 12mb
/dev/hdb1 /usr 1701mb
/dev/hdb2 /var 299mb
/dev/hdb3 /home 319mb
I realize that figuring out how to size this is a matter of trial an error but im hoping this might be a good start for a SSH/FTP server. I know ill definitely be doing coldfusion from this machine as well. Thanks in advance.
