I've just rented a new server (CentOS 5.4) and I see it has only 3 partitions:
/boot and the swaping partition.
I'd like to create, at least, partitions for
Would there be any problems if I try to create those new partitions through SSH??
Since the answers have pointed out it's a risky business to do this, I wonder if creating file-based partitions (as Levi De Haan suggests) would be a good solution in terms of performace, proper isolation and security (in comparison with normal partitions).
