    I agree. In my experience, even the most bloated Linux distro gets by just fine on 20GB if you just want a lot of space, but it can work great on as little as 5GB if you're really strapped. With 450GB you're not exactly hurting. You could give Each one 225GB and likely never run out of space, unless you're a big multimedia user. If you're constantly dumping raw images from a digital camera or camcorder, that's another story.

    Thanks for the help, but I have another question:

    Which linux distros come with an iTunes alternative pre-installed. I have a dail-up 26kb/s connection, so the package managers are useless for me. I just want to be able to switch without having to worry that I will be left with no iTunes alternative.

    Any distro with Amorok, GTKPod, should fill your needs.
