Question Win2K and LibraNet 2.8.1 on 6GB???

I have a Presario PIII/650MHz/192MB RAM laptop computer with a 6GB hard disk drive. Currently I have Windows 2000 installed on this machine and it only occupies about 1.5MB (includes all other Windows based programs). With that foundation of information, here are my questions:

(1) Will I have enough room to ALSO load LibraNet 2.8.1 onto this machine?

(2) Are there any precautions I should take if I do install LibraNet 2.8.1 onto this machine (dual O/S)?

Your thoughts on this . . .

6GB is a bit small, But a minimal install of Libranet will fit. The usual precautions of backing up everything and defraging windows should be enough.
I used a Knoppix disk and Qtparted to partition a few XP drives with no problem.
During the package setup, select minimal install. That will install X and ICEwm. You can add Gnome or KDE latter, but ICEwm is small and still has most of the features you need.
