CentOS 6: No separate /home partition


I do not want /home in a separate partition for a new CentOS 6 install. However, there no longer appears to be a “Review and Modify Partition Layout” in the text installer. How can I do this?

EDIT: I’m doing a netinstall, if that makes any difference.


It seems from what I’ve read online that CentOS 6 doesn’t support modifying your partition layout when installing in Text-Mode.

It seems that this option is only available if you’re performing a graphical install.

This is covered in the release notes.
