I think the actual install size is 4.78g. But 5G is nice round number. Figure on that

... besides, having a 200GB hard drive can't hurt.

lol. a 4 gig drive? That's cool linux loves it's legacy hardware.

I have 6.4 and 8g drives both running RH 8. Both are slower than the BigBox but both work flawlessly. Choose custom install and stripout the garbage you don't want. You can always rpm it later if find you missed something.

Good Luck!

I think I have had RH8 down to 1.8 on a machine, but that was pretty lean. And as I recall I did run into some issues of needing to rpm in some files to meet basic dependencies whenever I tried to use it for more that just a web portal...anyway, good to know.

a footprint is as small as you want it to be, linux won't force you to install anything you don't want, you can install it in 100mb if you really wanted to...
