New disks


What is the easiest way to bring new disks into your system? I have 2 - 30GB drives that I would like to software mirror for my file/FTP server. I am using redhat71.
]
I have used diskdrake with mandrake before and have been looking for something similar for redhat.

....or can you use diskdruid after install?

Thanks for you help,
jason

diskdruid will be ok pretty much.

best way tho i'd say...
insert the drive, asuming it's on hdb

use cfdisk/fdisk to remove any old partitions and make one single new one if there were more than one

then use mke2fs /dev/hdb1 to make the filesystem, all tehre is to it really... you'll probably want to use ext3 if you can use it on rh7. i think to use ext3, after you've made the ext2 drive, use tune2fs -j /dev/hdb1 to make the ext3 journal, then mount it as ext3...
