If that is what concerns you, then try (within debian-installer) to resize (shrink) the MacOS partition in a non-destructive way. You said you have 4 GB, that should be enough for both OSes (at least if MacOS is kept minimal, I think 8.1 only requires less than 200 Mb). Adding a another HD is another possibilty, if you're unsure about repartitioning. -- Hans Ekbrand (http://sociologi.cjb.net) <firstname.lastname@example.org> Q.
