The CLUSTER_README file should give you some idea.  From the 2.6 Jumbo
I applied last December:


without using the save option, the patch installation process will
still require some amount of disk space for installation and
administrative tasks in the /, /usr, /var, or /opt directories where
patches are typically installed.  The exact amount of space will
depend on the machine's architecture, software packages already
installed, and the difference in the patched objects size.  To be
safe, it is not recommended that a patch cluster be installed on a
system with less than 10 MBytes of available space in each of these
directories. Running out of disk space during installation may result
in only partially loaded patches.  Be sure a recent full system backup
is available in case a problem occurs, and check to be sure adequate
disk space is available before installing the patch cluster.

1. disk perf: multiple mode IDE-patches + cluster patches ?

I'm running a stable Linux 1.0.9. I have two quantum IDE drives (350 and 250
mb) and have always felt that disk i/o seems occupy a lot of system  time
(disproportionate even, compared to dos/win ) -- a *definite* performance hit.
So I've been considering options.

Two that come up regularly are the multiple mode IDE Performance Enhancements
and the cluster patches which also seem to improve disk performance...

Thing is, I know little about the first (the README) and nothing about the
second. So what I'm after is some knowledgeable explanation -- an overview --
if anyone cares to offer it. Or a pointer to something. Thanks.
