Re: Partition sizes...

hi ya alexander...

partition size is sort of an individual  preference

for partition info....faqs..

i prefer... 
	/	- small as possible ( 64Mb-128Mb ) 
		- so that single user works even on some corrupted systems
	/var	- 256mb - more for mail servers
	/usr	- 1Gb - 4Gb
	/opt	- rest of disk

put user data into /opt or on your 20gb disk ...
	- keep the above system stuff separated from user stuff

for your case..use one of the 4Gb disks as your system....
and use the other as a raid mirror or regular backup ...

and use the 20Gb for data for your db server

have fun
