    I am sorry but I don't understand what you are asking. Are you asking how to managing sharing the data from the hard disks?

    or are you asking how to partition your 80GB hard drive on an ubuntu intsall if you plan on running the operating system as a file system?

    If it is going to be an ubuntu based file server then I recommend at least 10 gig for ubuntu, the apps, libraries and user files. Then you can allocate as much additional space as you want to house the shared files for the fileserver.
