    im particular with how many bytes are you going to partition with the different directories of linux. that is, the tree (i.e. /home, /bin, /opt and others).

    and most, especially, the /swap. i know /swap is equivalent to 2 * RAM (physical memory). but i usually bend the idea about the size of it. for example, i have a 25MB of RAM and /swap should be, ideally, 512MB. but thinking of an upgrade in the time future, i probably would let this be around 1GB :-)

    There are lots of things to also take into account like ... what is the purpose of the box? What is acceptable performance? ... etc.

    On my FC2 desktop, I have 500MB of Swap. That should be all I need for the tasks that I do. I have a couple of Linux servers that have 500MB and 800MB of swap respectively although they never actually use more than 5% of that. / for the box that I have people access is 20 gigs and /home is roughtly 190 gigs. All my slackware packages are on /slackware and I am about to get another 200 gig HD and mount that as /share.

    on my 40gb desktop right now im using

    /swap = 512mb
    /boot = 100mb
    /u01 = 10gb (my database! and other DB tools)
    / = 10gb

    the rest is Fat32 for my M$win !

    Re: Paritition Sizes

    back then, i'm very particular to the partition sizes since ive only known linux via books now, its only swap and / for me. if need arises, i'll just plug-in another hd and soft link it to the system.

    Re: Paritition Sizes

    @hombre: i was like that, too. now, im happy with the automated partition done during the installation.

    Re: Paritition Sizes

    you can go for automatic partitioning and just review it before proceeding with the installation process.
