CentOS 5.3 - how can I set up a partition as an iscsi tartget

I've been trying to figure out how to set up a partition on my CentOS serve r as an iscsi target, so I can access it from another CentOS client.

I've been reading the manuals and various pages on the web, and nothing is very clear. I just want to be able to create a partition on my server, define it as a target, and then have my client initiator mount it.

Is there any way to do this?

I have installed iscsi-initiator-utils

I used to have this on my site before my blog software broke and I am too lazy/disinterested to rebuild it.
Just search this page for iscsi:


centos, iscsi
