Greetings all,

i'm trying to create a dedicated file server (Samba3) with my dell server. I 
have a total of 5 scsi hard disk totalling roughly up to 1200GB (Planning on 
using RAID5). I am just wondering what the best possible way to partition it 
for performance.

RAM = 1 GB
Users = there will only be one user for this server.

Sample partition
/ (root) = 1GB
/usr = 1GB
/var = 1 GB
/swap = 2048MB
/files = rest of the hard disk

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.
