Thanks for your suggestions,

I think to give 5GB to root partition. Moreover, I thought that is best to
create a separate partitions to the log netview directory (in standard
layout, /usr/OV/log) and the webconsole log directory (in standard layout

What do you think about?

Finally, there are more than four partition. So I must create one extended
partition. There is a best choice for mounting particular filesystem on the
logical partition that I will create?

PS.: what kind of filesystem is well suited for my platform (etx2, ext3,
reiserfs and so on)? And what is best inode dimension?
