I am planning to install linux on my PC, which has 2 harddisks, one
120MB and the other 450MB. My original intention is to have the 120MB
harddisk use for linux. But after reading the Linux FAQ and some
documents on Xfree, I wonder if 120MB is enough.
I want to have full installation of the SLS package, and I need
to compile X programs. If over 90MB is already used for the full
SLS, 10MB for swap partition, I will have less than 10MB of disk space
left for further expansion.
Do I need to reserve a large amount of disk space if I am going to
write some serious programs on X? The problem is that my original
450MB HD has been partitioned for DOS, one 200MB (for stacker) and
250MB and I do not want to move the files from these two partitions.
Also, 120MB HD is the boot drive.
Please give me advice on what I should do. Should I move the files
in the 200MB partition to the 120MB and use 200MB for linux? Or just
go ahead to use 120MB for linux?
Thanks in advance for any tips!
