        First, a question: what do you want this machine to do?
        852 MB should be enough.  Go with a "Custom" installation, and
you'll need to be utterly ruthless about not installing unneeded
distribution sets.
        Once you're up and running: a) compile a custom kernel, and b)
change the settings on newsyslog so you don't keep excess files
laying around.
