I will find out in just over an hour. My Linux machine has a 500g hard drive with just over 400 gig free so maybe I will learn how to do another partition or two for times like this.
I have only used Linux for a few days so that is why all the dumb questions.
Thank You for the replies and help. I like it here.
As for doing a change of partitions I can recommend PMagic (Yes, one more iso to download but not that big!).
It can be done easy using the PCLinuxOS CD or DVD during a install but this Pmagic thingy is easy(er) to understand for newbe's. It is all very visual. Just like Gparted in PCLinuxOS but you could go wrong with mount/unmount if you don't know exactly what to do.
Also advised: Split / (root) partition from /home partition (where you can put all your stuff in your user folder.
If you ever need to re-install (or a major update when i.e. the rolling distro needs so), you can keep your files where they are and install just / (root). Saying that .... critical files ALWAYS needs a backup!
Edit: For root is 15 Gb normally plenty but if you plan loads of apps, games etc. you can go to 20 as well (You got the space!). O, and then swap. A old common rule used to be twice the size of the RAM. For a PC with enough RAM this topic isn't "hot" but for laptops (sleeping away, LOL) it often is.
