    Default partitioning

    According to the install docs i'm supposed to configure /boot and swap then use the remaining for /root. I really don't want to do this and would like to know exactly which mount point is the most important for storage.

    A quick google search indicates /opt/zimbra is where the message store goes so my question then is are there any other important directories that need a lot of space?

    my plan is:

    100m /boot
    8gb swap
    20gb /root

    then with the remaining 700gb i would mount to /opt unless there is some other directory that also will require a lot of space.

    If /opt is the only thing that eats space please let me know so i can go forward with this install.

    This is what I did, although I would suggest that you put /opt on a different drive if you can.
