CentOS 5.4 Partioning Issue
I am working on installing CENTOS 5.4 as a cPanel server.
I am using the following partion layout below.

/boot -- 100 MB
/usr -- 8 GB
/var – 8 GB
/home – fill to disk
/tmp -- 1 GB
swap – 2x memory (4000 mb for me)
/ -- 3 GB

And during the installation I get an error such as “ cannot continue install, you may be out of disk space” and I know that this error has something to do with the partioning layout, I am also installing the server with a MINIMAL INSTALL.

( I personally think is has something to do with the partion “/” because it does not have enough space to install but 3 GB should be enough..and I need /home to fill the rest of the HD because that is where the cPanel accounts will be )

Below are my server specs that pertain to what I think the issue is that may help you troubleshoot.

80GB SATA II Hard Disk DriveSS
- Capacity (GB): 80GB
- Format: SATA II
- RPM: 7200
- Cache: 8MB

If anyone could please assist me on what is causing this issue, I would appreciate it.
Thank you so much.
