This document describes how to partition the HDD's used in our cluster.

As of this writing, you need to have an IBM xxxxxxx-1 drive as primary master
you need to have an IBM xxxxxxx-0 drive as secondary master, the cdrom as
secondary slave.  Optionally you may have a Fujitsu xxxxxxxx as primary slave.

The script is kept in CVS, under medusa/tools, and is called 
auto-partition.sh.  Run partition-disks.sh with no arguments for usage.  The script
does some basic checking for you, but assumes you know what you're doing.
