[tlug] Partition sizes

G'day all.

Getting ready to attempt a RH7.2 installation on my Toshiba 2800 notebook
(post hacking)

I'll be redoing the linux partitions; the basic split is 5Gb to
Windblows (98ME) and 15Gb to Linux. AFAIK RH7 is not too bad at picking
partition sizes, but I was thinking of something like:

	swap	512Mb  (I have 128Mb of RAM)
	/	5Gb
	/boot	60Mb or whatever it ask for
	/home	whatever is left - probably a bit over 9Gb

How does that seem?

At present on my office RH7.1, of which I did the default workstation
install, I have:

	swap	1Gb  (never more than partly used, as there is 512Mb of RAM)
	/	10Gb (2.9Gb used)
	/boot	54.4Mb
	/home	The rest
