Swap Partition
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.

/Boot 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.

/Root Partition
The root directory resides. In this setup, all files (except those stored in /boot) reside on the root partition.
