Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a system running RHEL v4 with 2 hard drives in a hardware Raid 0 config. I did a kickstart/cd installation, installed the necessary rpms from command line, and then found out I need another partition. /var is in a 47G partition. I copied /var to a temp directory on another partition, redid /dev/cciss/c0d0p2 (the physical partition that /var is in), then chose to add 1 extended and 4 logical partitions to c0d0p2. So now I've got c0d0p2p1 extended, and c0d0p2p5, c0d0p2p6, c0d0p2p7, c0d0p2p8 logical partitions. I need to create file systems in these partitions so that I may create mountpoints for them... one of the logicals will contain/mount to /var. The others are needed for an Oracle install, where I have to mount /u01, /u01/redo1, /u01/archive. I'll be mounting more /u01/.. directories on a SAN.. I've already got the file systems created in the partitions there. Am I approaching this correctly? Any hints?
If I read this numbering correctly, you have p4 in the first list as an extended partition. In the second list, you have more partitions that look like subsets of partition 2. The two list do not appear to be consistent.....
That may well have been the problem.. I thought it had been changed to an extended partition before I created the new subpartitions. I have worked around the problem, although it involved a complete new reinstall, adding the desired partitions to the kickstart disk. It's smooth sailing now!
