Searched with every search strategy I could come up with - but, cannot find an answer.
What is the minimum partition size for installing Mint 5?
As a newbie, I'll be installing via the Install button. Please, if I have to change something, and I cannot change it via a button in the installer, walk me through any additional steps to minimize installation, or point me to a tutorial or glossary...
Target drive: 36 gig SCSI
Will be dual-boot with Windows XP Pro.
Available free space is 14 gig (the used space is Windows and ancillaries)... HOWEVER, I need to set aside 5 gig out of that for updating/maintenance reasons -- SO... only 9 gig truly free.
System has 2 gig RAM, so swap (does Mint even need a swap file?) should be minimal.
