In my experience, 10GB is a little bit cramped for FCx. Add very
many apps, and you'll start to run out of space. Especially if
you decide to upgrade, and start downloading ISO images, at over
1/2 GB each. Open Office is about a Gig all by itself.

So if I have an 80G HD, I can probably afford 20G of space allocated to FC4
I'm sure...

Second question, and please do not throw eggs...

If I also want to leave a partition for Yellow Dog Linux in addition to FC4,
should the clean OS X install be done thusly:

First: OS X
Next: FC4 20 GB
Next: FC4 swap 1 GB
Next: LYD 10 or 20 GB (?)
Next: LYD swap 1 GB

All partitions should be extended type, non-journaled?

Depends on what you want. Partitioning Linux has as many methods
as there are users, I suppose. I'm not familiar with Yellow Dog Linux,
so I can't say. Depending on how well they work together, LYD and FCx
might be able to share the swap. Perhaps a better way to go (what I'd
do now, if I rebuilt my machine) is to put swap into a file, so it can
easily be resized.

What is your prejudice against journaled FS?

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
