I have a 2.5G partition that I just installed Xubuntu on from the 
Xubuntu ISO.  The current output of df:

/dev/hda2         2403452   1115744     1165616  49% /
varrun      (I'm typing this in on my laptop while looking at 
varlock        the other screen, so I will skip some of the details

As you can see, I have a 50 G drive for /home.  Combining /home and /, I 
have just a little over 1.2 G used by the default install.

The current contents of /var/cache/apt/archives is a little over 47MB, 
so not a lot to be gotten back there.  Overall, my opinion is that it's 
a very impressive install.  Personally I'm just tickled that I can use 
this old Pentium MMX at all.  It's actually working pretty well, and 
GNU/Linux recognizes the really big drive that I put in just fine, even 
though I had to set a jumper on it for 32 GB reporting so the BIOS 
wouldn't freak out.

I'm planning on setting up several server features on the box, mainly 
for grins.  I'll set it up with NFS, a print server, and ssh for
