Thanks for all the partitioning advice. I installed RH7.2 today in the ~15Mb partition on my notebook. I tried manual control of the partition, but the installation kept failing saying there were disk errors - possibly not enough space. Finally I gave up and accepted its allocation, which was to put everything except /boot and swap in one partition. It then installed OK. It's curious; I did the Gnome + Developers installation, i.e. skipped KDE and Games/Amusements, and the whole installation only took less than 2Gb. Dunno where it was running out of space. The installation went quite smoothly; unlike RH6.2 it recognized the video chipset, installed the PCMCIA OK, didn't freeze in odd places, etc. The one thing that doesn't work is the sound card, which always seems to give pain. One question. I like to start up with several kterms on the first window. With RH6.2 I could space them around where I wanted them, and it restarted with them in place. With RH7.2 they start all stacked in the top LH corner. Is there any way of fixing their locations?
