bit. I don't actually use anything except English, but I like to check
for conflicts, as occasionally there will be conflicts that only appear
in a subpackage for a specific language.
Most of my systems either have a 40GB or an 80GB hard disk.
For the 40GB hard disk, I set it to 15GB for / and 23GB for /home with 2GB for swap.
For the 80GB hard disk, I set it to 20GB or 40GB (depending on whether I expect games to be installed on it) for /, and 55GB or 35GB for /home and 5GB swap. The reason I have such a high swap is because the machines that I do have the higher hard disks, they run more intensive processes and I put it there for a precaution.
My one machine that does have 160GB hard disk is set up like this: 50GB for /, 105GB for /home, and 5GB for swap. This machine runs video conversion and recording and all sorts of extra media center goodies, so that's why /home is so large.
ServeMobile (one of my laptops) has an 80GB hard disk, and has been running Fedora from 8 onward. When I switched to Fedora 9, I upped the swap space because of some slowdowns that I experienced because of swap maxing out. And in Fedora 10, it uses this configuration.
