RedHat Linux 5.2 Installation
Am going to install Linux 5.2 as second operating system. How large should I make the partition? Am going to install Windows 95 as other operating system. Hard Drive Size is 13.6 GB.
I personally have not played with RH5.2 but have with 6.0. What I would suggest is to first go thru and partition your hard drive before installing ANY OS's unless you have partition magic or the like. I personally would go thru and partition the drive in 2 gig partitions (since you didnt say which Win95 version you have) when all done with that install Win95 first and get it setup. then you can install linux and you will have to use its fdisk or druid to create a linux NATIVE and SWAP partition. (this will be made out of one of the existing partions on your harddrive. (HINT make sure to choose a partition to convert that is TOTALLY below the 8gig mark or linux will not be bootable!)
I personally have set up my / (root partition) as 1 gig and /swap (swap file) as 2 times the amount of ram) (ie 128megs ram = 256meg swap file) and then I have a 2 gig /usr (applications/data) partition.
Hope this helped answer your questions
