Hi Roger, When I install, I choose from packages, KDE, which has many dependencies, along with various other packages that I use. That puts it over the top for the default auto settings which cause /usr to be too small. Since I only have a 56k dialup connection, I have no intention of trying to do a buildworld or use the ports to install large packages like KDE. It would take too long to download. I'll just use what comes on the CD. I'll wait for the next release to upgrade the full system from CD, except for security patches. For now, I guess I'll just go with the scheme that has worked so far, and if I run into any problems down the road, I'll try something different. I suppose I could just put everything under / but that might introduce other problems such as an unusably corrupted filesystem after a hard crash or excessive fragmentation. I guess the only thing that I need to do with the scheme that I've used before is to increase the /var from 256Mb to 512Mb to be on the safe side, and I'll set the system to keep the logs trimmed. Thanks for the suggestions to all who've helped. Its appreciated.
