8. The Lilo way

Lilo fans can use Disk Druid which is RedHat's default partitioning utility – yes we haven't finished with partitioning just yet. First delete the second partition which will show up in Disk Druid's screen as /dev/hda2. Then create a new partiton, set its mount point to /boot and size to 16 Mb. Create the second partition and set its mount point to /(that's called the root partition) and size to growable. This tells Disk Druid to reclaim all free space after you have finshed partititoning . Create the third partition and set its mount point to swap and size to about 127 Mb presuming you have 64 Mb RAM, those with less can make a 64 Mb swap partition.
