HDD Space


I am getting an old computer tomorrow for free from a family member, and I have Mandrake and Gentoo installs on disks. My question is, this computer that I am getting only has a 5 or 10 GB hdd, and I was jsut wondering how much spacema single Mandrake install takes. Thanks in advance. I have installed and palyed around with it before, but I never checked how much space it quite took up.

it'll exist just fine on that drive. a standard base install with kde is probably about 3gb.
