Glad to see you got it going, Ron. I had faith in you

Those partition sizes weren't absolute. I just sized up a 60G drive and figured they would be about right. What did you end up with?

TR, here is what I have from 'view disk useage';

/dev/sda1 ?........484.2MB......../boot
/dev/sda2 ?...........2.7GB........./
/dev/sda3 ?..........52.6GB......../home
/dev/sda5 ?........586.8MB........swap
UUID= ext N/A / 0.0
UUID= ext N/A /swap 0.0
UUID= ext N/A /home 0.0
UUID= ext N/A /boot 0.0

I started to get a little complicated when trying to setup /VAR and /USR.

I still need to get an idea where to install some of the downloads like FireFox, FAHMon, the 'not part of the package' installs.

I must say it is a very good looking OS. not an easy startup. time will tell!

Ron

I tried Red Hat about 10 years ago. I didn't stay with it very long. a few tries with Slackware, Mandrake and most recently, SUSE, Gento and Ubuntu. I plan on sticking with Fedora for a while longer. it is (to me) what Linux, for some of us, needs to be. not as intuitive as, say, XP, it is much better now.

Installation directory is a bit of a sore point with Linux. There is no equivalent of "Program Files" as a default directory for program installation.

In theory, programs that are part of the system should be in /bin (user) or /sbin (root). In theory, programs that you install that are not part of the system but that you want should be in /usr/bin or /usr/sbin. Since Linux derives from Unix and Unix is designed to be networked, then programs installed on your terminal instead of on the server are installed to /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/sbin.

In practice, none of the Linux packagers can either adhere to the theory above, or quite agree among themselves over how to do it, so the file locations for my Gentoo install (/usr/lib/mozilla-firefox) will differ from Fedora.

The one universal truth you have is that your personal settings will always be under /home/<username>. Back up only that periodically and you'll be fine.

If you want to get an idea of where your system hides things, typing "echo $PATH" without the quotations into a shell will give you a headstart.
