hda - - ~5GB - Hardrive
hda1 - C:\ - 2GB - Windows 98 SE
hda2 - /boot - 64MB - Grub
hda3 - swap - 512MB - Linux swap
hda4 - / - ~2.4GB - Gentoo
Following the install instructions at http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...?part=1&chap=5
using the minimal CD (not enough ram for universal), my Linux partition runs out of space half-way through extracting portage. According to http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...?part=1&chap=2
all I need is 1.5 GB to install Gentoo, but this seems to be false.
I'd love to get rid of Windows 98 as not only is it slow and old, it cannot use anything plugged into the usb port of my Thinkpad 600 (internet, flash-drive etc). I only still have it so I can play Total Annihilation where-ever there is a powerpoint.
I hoped moving both tarballs to the windows partition (hda1) and extracting them from there would work, but hda4 still filled to the brim while applying solvent (!) to the portage tarball.
How do I install gentoo on this laptop?
