Hello Peter,

thanks for putting me on the right track.

I partitioned a testing machine accordingly.

[root at minas2 ~]# df -h
Bestandssysteem       Grtte Gebr Besch Geb% Aangekoppeld op
                        49G  753M   45G   2% /

                        49G  180M   46G   1% /mailserver
                       9,7G  150M  9,0G   2% /openvpn

anticipating the creation of an openvpn - ldap - and mailserver.

Greetings, J.
