    Fedora partition size


    I have 80G Hard Drive, 512MB RAM and was wondering how much partition size should I create for Fedora? Can someone give me a detailed list? E.g., how much size for /, /boot, /home, /temp, /var, etc. I have Windows XP and am trying to create duel boot system for Fedora 6.

    /boot -- 102 MB
    / (root) -- 6 GB
    swap --- 750 MB
    /home -- rest of space.

    1GB for /boot partition is too much. 102MB is enough.

    For myself, I usually stick with a rather simple partition plan and go with something like:

    / ...about 6 to 10 gigs (ext3)
    swap ...about 512 megs
    /home ...about 10 gigs (ext3)

    ...and I usually don't even bother with separate partitions for /boot, /temp, /var, etc
