Was Re-Installing SUSE Linux, Lightning Flash system went down

Was Re-Installing SUSE Linux, Lightning flashed and the system went down. When I tried to restart the system, ended up with GRUB. I typed help then just shutdown... Planning to re-install SUSE Linux 9.2 If that doesn't work I'll most likely just purchase another harddrive since my old system has only 13G with 4.5G available space. Also, any suggestions to how big each file should be to start with?

\Root Size?
\Swap Size?
\usr Size?
\Home Size?

Please advise? Not fustrated yet,,, just challenged.

it went down while you were reinstalling? just start the process again, shouldnt take long.

As for directory sizes, i don't know how suse does it but most distros will include them in the / of the filesystem by default, that's how i prefer it, so i am not limited to size anywhere, things will just expand till the HDD is full
