Rhel 5


i have just installed RHEL5, before that i used Ubuntu and other Debian derivatives for quite sometime, i am having problem while mounting my local partitions, i mean i can't even display their device id, while in ubuntu i used the fdisk command, it doesnt work in RHEL5.

Is there a guide of RHEL 5 for beginners like there is a guide for ubuntu on ubuntuguide.org or something like that?

I assume that you aren't familiar with the lvm concept, yet.

The default RHEL setup creates a small partition for boot and a large partition that is used as physical disk for the logical volume management.

You can see this as an abstraction layer that lets you easily manage your disk space.

You should use lvdisplay to see which logical volumes are active on your system. With mount you will see where the logical volumes are mounted in your system.
