SUMMARY: disk partitions

Many thanks for some excellent advice on the subject of disk partitions.

Overall, I found no overwhelming reason to divide up the big add-on drive on my
server system. The reasons people gave for partitioning: keeping groups of
users separate, speeding up backup and recovery, running out of inodes ....

These don't apply to our small network at this point.

I also learned that the standard partitioning scheme for disks makes partition
'c' the whole disk, so I needn't edit the partition table, just make a
filesystem on device 'c'.

Thanks again ...
