I've decided to do a fresh Linux CentOS 6 install onto a small computer which I intend to use as a basic server.
The OS has been installed and I would like to partition the 31gig sda drive (there is only one hard drive in it) into 2 15gig partitions sda and sdb.
I have never needed to partition a hard drive on linux before and I am taking a look at the tool parted (I have booted into rescue mode btw).
# parted /dev/sda # print
I get the following output
Number Start End Size Type File system Flags 1 1049kb 525MB 524MB primary ext4 boot 2 525MB 32.2GB 31.7GB primary lvm
I'd like to get advice on how to correctly partition the 31GB hard drive into the two 15GB hard drives without breaking the system (I have done this before many times and I don't entirely trust the googled instructions I have found)
any help would be greatly appreciated
