Re: [vox-tech] Laptop Computer setup for IF

I have set up 
/ 	6GB
/var	700MB
/home	14GB

I have XFree86 working and xcdroast working. I must say it is looking good. I 
have to work on sound and printing next. Then I will set up apache and samba. 
This has been kind of fun.


PS Thanks  for the help so far so good.
