Just some hints, not to be taken as gospel (I am more familiar with other flavours of linux).
Chances are a Xeon system has hardware raid so you will just see 1 disk of 73.4GB
Starting from the standard install scheme, then

Reduce size of /home to very small (1GB)

In case you ever put other products on such as IBM java, or Tivoli gateway add a /opt partition.
/opt should be at least 2GB.

Keep the root partition '/' small.
Have a separate /boot partition.

Netview is best in it's own /usr/OV partition.

Split the rest of the disk into 2 partitions called
/usr and /usr/OV
say 30% to /usr and 60% to /usr/OV

I'ld like to figure out what is the best partition scheme to use for my

Many Thanks,
