I have decided I want to have suspend to disk ability.  That requires swap 
equal to my RAM, doesn't it.  Will that automatically happen too?

I think it's OK to be kind to animals, smile.

Being the rock solid decision maker that I am, I plan to have a 30gb boot 
drive, 8.5gb of swap and the balance of the TB as /home.  I wonder what I will 
actually do, tomorrow?

The one thing I am certain of is this:  I will have a properly configured and 
backed up computer for the first time in over 20 years.  I can just hear my 
computer say "whew!"  That means, "it's about time".

I am so excited, I can hardly wait.  Additionally, I am going to try to get a 
copy of Jaunty that contains KDE 4.2.3.  I read that is possible.  If so, I 
will install that.  Talk to you later my friend.
