Hi all,

I'm trying to install, but when I need to configure my partions I can't know how to change between disk1 and disk2.

My disks configurations:
Disk 1 STAT: 500GB (i need this for /)
Disk 2 STAT: 500GB (/ srv)
Disk 3 STAT: 2000GB (/ backup)

To list the disks & partitions do
Code:
fdisk -l

to partition disks do for example /dev/sdb
Code:
cfdisk /dev/sdb

and while you are at 'setup' choose disks as mount points.
You can take a look at wiki videos for examples.

Well that depends on what you are going to use for...
I usually create a boot partition and if necessary /home or /var or /opt depending on the usage and the setup.
As for the filesystem most people use ext3/ext4 as it's quite mature and stable and has great recovery in case of a disk failure, I personally prefer JFS though for my installations, especially in RAID 5 arrays.

You are going to dedicate a whole disk for /srv, so I'm guessing you are to setup a web server, since /srv has symlinks to /var/www/ only.

The filesystem it's up to you...

Disk 1:
/boot 500MB are quite enough to play.
/
Disk 2:
/srv

Disk 3:
/Backup or /mnt/backup

1. More. when i install http://www.configserver.com/cp/csf.html i recive this error:

Could not open /etc/crontab: No such file or directory at /etc/csf/csf.pl line 1897.

I believe CSF is looking for root's crontab and that's
/var/spool/cron/crontabs/root
so make a symlink like
Code:
ln -s /var/spool/cron/crontabs/root   /etc/crontab

or specify in CSF, if you can, /var/spool/cron/crontabs/root
