how to set up usb stick and how much space to distribute.
Alright. I havnt touched linux for quite a while, so yes im a newbie now.

I getting the urdge to get into debian. Im downloading the 2 dvds for intel.

I have windows xp and multiple drives partitioned on one serial atadrive.

Now heres my questions:

1. How should I distribute 35.1GB of space for when i set up the drives. ( Deleteing one of my partitioned drives. )

2. I want to use usb stick to boot, instead of kernal that makes you choose when you boot up and you have 5 seconds. I been reading a bit, it says 128mb, and do all this stuff.

It says i need 128mb stick... But I dont want it to install it. I just want it to boot? Is there a better guide? How big stick do you reccomend? and when it says those commands is that on the debian cd when its running?

Thanks so much sorry, I didnt know if this needed to be in newbie section but this concerns debian.
