Question Lycoris and Lindows Space??

How much space on a hard drive do Lycoris and Lindows 4.0 take up on a hard drive. I want to get one that's big enough for them, and a printer, and maybe Open Office Documents. Just wondering so I get one that is good for me.

Well I'm sure it all depends on if your going to install everything or customize it. I would say if you want to run both OS's on the same drive and considering most of the time you can't even find a hard drive under 20GB in stores these days, I'd say anything above 20GB is going to work just fine.

20 gig would be perfectly adequate - considering the prices - I'd get a 40 gig

Thanks, I was asking about each one sperately. I have Lindows CD, which somewhat fights off the urge to get 4.0. It is very good though. I thought that it was *GB each, on average, but I was unsure. I was gonna get a 18GB Hard Drive which should suit my needs if I can fit my OS, a few games, word documents, and to install a printer on it.:-) Sorry if I was vague.
