I had no problems with NetBSD/pmax on my 400 MB drive. I also run NetBSD/i386
on a 6MB system with two drives adding to 300 MB, one 100-megger for root and
one 200 MB /usr. It certainly was a tight fit on the sole 100-megger.
OTOH, I've never bothered with X on any of my systems.
Besides, the NetBSD sysinst is a lot nice for setting the disk up than
OpenBSD's installation tools, which are only slightly more friendly than
disklabel, BSD fdisk et al.

En ligne avec Thor 2.6.
