Disk Druid Utilities for Disk Partitioning
When doing an interactive installation the partitioning will be done using Disk Druid. It’s a very simple GUI.
Swap partitions are used to support virtual memory. In other words, data is written to a swap partition when there is not enough RAM to store the data your system is processing. If your computer has 16MB of RAM or less, you must create a swap partition.
The partition mounted on /boot contains the operating system kernel (which allows your system to boot Red Hat Linux), along with files used during the bootstrap process.
The root directory resides. In this setup, all files (except those stored in /boot) reside on the root partition.
