If you chose to create a custom layout, you must tell the installation program where to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This is done by defining mount points for one or more disk partitions in which Red Hat Enterprise Linux is installed.
17.14.1. Graphical Display of DASD Device(s)
offers a graphical representation of your DASD device(s).
Using your mouse, click once to highlight a particular field in the graphical display. Double-click to edit an existing partition or to create a partition out of existing free space.
Above the display, you can review the
name (such as /dev/dasda), the
(which shows the hard disk's geometry and consists of three numbers representing the number of cylinders, heads, and sectors as reported by the hard disk), and the
of the hard drive as detected by the installation program.
Finally, note which device is associated with
/boot. The kernel files and bootloader sector will be associated with this device. For most common cases, the first DASD or SCSI LUN will be used, but for some unusual cases, this may not be the case. The device number will be used when re-ipling the post-installed system.
