Setup of My Laptop
here's my configuration, you can check your own settings by issuing the 'df' command at the command line.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/hda6 236M 43M 181M 19% / /dev/hda10 2.9G 909M 1.8G 32% /home /dev/hda5 996M 84M 913M 8% /mnt/win_c /dev/hda8 2.0G 1.5G 355M 81% /usr /dev/hda9 2.3G 32M 2.2G 1% /var
I haven't put much on the computer and you'll notice my /usr drive is pretty close to full. I think if I reinstall the system, I'll eliminate the /var partition and roll it into the /usr partition. You can see my root directory is fine, and the /home directory probably just right. The /mnt/win_c partition is a partition I set up in the Windows 2000 Professional setup. It isn't formatted with NTFS like the rest of that partition, but rather FAT32. This is so I have a transparent partition that can be accessed from Windows (its D:) and from Linux /mnt/win_c. This has been really helpful in doing things like downloading files to set up my intenet connection (my laptop doesn't have a floppy so getting info to it has to be through CD or download), all I do is download under Windows and save to my D: drive.
