Question Partitioning 2nd Hard Drive

I currently have RH7.2 installed and have installed another drive(13gb) for additional space(it is hdc). I want to use the drive for additional file storage space/directories that will be shared via NFS and Samba. Any recommendation as to how I should partition using fdisk?

On the server I partitioned my 2nd hard drive into 4 primary partitions using fdisk. I then used tune2fs to change them from ext2 to ext3. After that I changed etc/fstab to have them mounted at boot time to a directory I created. I then added them to etc/exports with permissions for the users to be able to access them via NFS.

On the client computers I set up a director to mount them to and changed etc/fstab to automaticall mount them at boot time.

I still need to set up the directories as the Samba shares but that should be a snap with Swat.
