The first install of FC4 that i ran had a 100mb /boot, a 10 gb root, a swap partition, and a 4 gb /home partition setup.

Your swap is extravagantly huge (1/2 gig is more than enough) and your allocation of space to / and /home is back to front. I very much doubt if you'd need more than 5Gb for /, while /home is where all your data will reside.

Where did he state the swap size?
No. Were you running a modern machine with lots of RAM and a 2.2 kernel, I might agree with you. The ancient wisdom used to be that swap should equal 2.5 X the RAM. The argument with modern kernels is whether to have swap or not, as anything with 1/2 gig, let alone a gig of RAM should run fine without swap (I'm cautious -- I'd argue that it'll run better with some swap).A-Wing wrote:I would generally say 1GB swap is standard for todays machines (although with 512MB RAM I barely touch the swap).
