Description Telsa Gwynne 2001-07-03 08:45:26 EDT
text install on Sony Vaio PCG-SR1K with 9Gb disk and 128Mb RAM.
Selected autopartitioning. Came up with: (sorry, formatting will be vile)

  /dev/hda1        1  1066  8361M  ext3  /
  /dev/hda2     1067  1093   211M  swap
  /dev/hda3     1094  1099    47M  ext3  /boot

* I don't pretend to understand partitioning, but I thought /boot was
supposed to be early on. Why is it hda3?

* 128M RAM. Shouldn't swap have been 256M, not 211? It's not as though
there is a lack of space.

Accepted it anyway.

We attempt swap from a starting size equal to RAM to 2*RAM.  It grows along with
the other growable partitions (/ in this case) so it may not get its entire

We known about the /boot problem, katzj is working on it.
