I just installed FreeBSD. After I installed it, I was surprised to find only 26M of space on /. I used the auto-defaults during the Disklabel portion of the install.

Goodness! What version did you install?
Q2: Will I be able to install GNOME, Firefox, download 30 MB of files, and place them on my GNOME dekstop? (I believe the desktop is located at /home/cstankevitz/.desktop aka on the root partition where there is only 26M of free space)
The default installation used to make /home a symbolic link to /usr/home.
Q3: Which changes, if any, should I make to my system?
Move /home to /usr/home and create a symbolic link /home -> /usr/home That should give you some breathing room in / unless you have the bad habit of running as root and crud accumulates in /root or you keep several old kernels. -- Lars Eighner http://www.larseighner.com/index.html 8800 N IH35 APT 1191 AUSTIN TX 78753-5266 _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
