I am a system admin with limited Linux experience, and have been tasked with setting up Cent OS 5.8 64bit install, and creating a template once complete.
My main client base will be developers, and I would like to be able use a separate partition for their application installs, logs, etc., so if the logs partition fills up it won't take down the system. All new systems will be created using VMware.
Would it be best to create one drive, and just partition it off? Or should I create a second disk and mount that as their application partition, then just add it to fstab?
