Minimum Memory/Disk Space to run Enterprise Server 5


I'm running Redhat WorkStation 4 on my old Dell Dimension XPS with 500MG ram and I can't remember the amount of disk space but more than enough to hold Oracle 10G, PHP4 and MySQL4 database.

I'd like to run Enterprise Server 5 and I think the minimum memory is 256MG memory but what about Disk space.

I've tried Redhat site but I cannot find any specs listed.

Does any one know the minimums??

Disk space required would vary from application to application. I have about 85MB in /var, but a server handling mail and logging stuff would need s e r i o u s space there. When you run rhel you're supposed to know what space you need, depending on what you're doing. With the price of hard drives, it's silly not to have too much space on a commercial box.
