http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, Although I am very familiar with partitioning regular desktop installations, using separate partitions for swap, root, and home... plus multi-boot machines where some partitions need to be extended partitions, I have never partitioned a hard drive for a server. I want to give this my best shot up front, as it's something worth doing right up front... I am in no mood to go through the hassles of making a mistake that I notice in 3 months! So... for a small home business server with a 2TB hard drive, I want my end result to function as: Print server File server Multi-media server Potent (Hardware)
