I've got a new computer with a 2GB SCSI disk which I want to partition for
linux. I've stuck a second-hand IDE drive in for DOS, so I was going to
use just primary partitions on the 2GB disk.
Following other people's experience on this list, I was going to try
Swap 64MB (there's 32M memory)
/foo the rest
and put /home, /tmp and /var under /foo. This should allow me to mount
/usr readonly, and perhaps even / as well, once it has settled down.
I'm assuming I should just create /, /usr and /foo with the installation
disk (when I've thought of a better name), and then switch to a shell and
create some links in / called /home, /tmp and /var pointing to /foo/home,
/foo/tmp and /foo/var which I've mkdir'ed first.
Is that all there is to it, or have I forgotten something?
