Thread: supported capacity

    supported capacity

    I use a p 133 as my file server. Right now it has a 4 gig hard drive in it but theres not enough room for everything i need. If I were to purchuse a 30 or 40 gig hard drive would it work right on this machine?

    How old is the computer?

    If it's more than 4 or 5 years old, you won't be able to use that disk to boot from, but it should work under linux just fine no matter how old it is.

    i'd probably load linux on the first drive that already works in linux which is 4 gb, then the 30 gb or whatever would be secondary master and mounted as home or something since the only thing in the home directories is the different shares

    That ought to work just fine.
