I am currently downloading VL 5.8 std after completely failing to get PuppyLinux to install to the hard disk. The machine is an old laptop, PII 266Mhz, 160MB RAM and a 3.1GB HDD(mem and HDD easily upgradeable). I have noted that all the reviews make mention of the fact that the install leaves you to decide what partitions/size you want. To that, I have no idea as all the other distros I have used did it for me! At the moment the HDD is RAW and I don't want any other OS on there. I have to tools at my disposal to partition and format the drive, just no idea of sizes, so any suggestions appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
