Description

Fedora, as of recently, now partitions drives by default in the following manner:

/boot 500mb (fine and good)
/ 50gb (not a good thing)
/home the rest of space on the disk

The reason this is a problem is because shares are located at /var/hda/files which falls under /, which in turn falls in the 50gb only category. Currently the way around this is to manually partition the drive on each install.

Asking the users to manually partition their drives on install is not an option imo.

One thing we can do is move files to /home instead of /var/hda/files, but we would also have to move /hda there as well, so whatever works. This could be a problem for users currently installing because they are only going to get 50gb max of space to save in shares, web apps, etc.
