Is it a purchased or download version? Have you been to the website to see if the info is there? It may even say it on the boxed edition......

The "professional" version requires about 4.5Gig with "everything" installed. There is a need for some extra space during the install, so you might need as much as 6Gig (just a guess) for the install to happen, but when you are done you will need under 5 Gog.

You might get away with using a 5 gig drive, but as the previous poster said, you would be way better off with a 6 gig or better yet an 8 gig drive.
