Im about to install FreeBSD, and I have two questions.
Some background information about this project. I have 25gigs of SCSI HDDs unformatted to use.
My first question is:
Other then /root, /swap, /user, and /var, what other partitions are needed for a first go at FreeBSD, in Linux /home is often used, but what is a good lineup for FreeBSD other then the ones named so far?
The books Ive read so far really dont relate a whole lot in this regard.
My second question is:
If I need to span a partition over more than one hard drive how is this done? If I were to make a large /user partition over small drives, how are these partition extensions set up? Again the books dont relate how this is done during an installation.
I have not seen these subjects pointed out, nor have I come across them so far. The book (s) I have, take one into a step by step method, but do not point out these subjects at the appropriate time during the installation.
