Can anyone please tell me how much space you need to
install Debian-Sarge with the Debian-Installer rc3
release ?

I've just tried a 2.3Gb partition,  and its sitting
there with its legs up in the air.

A bit of background........
I'm new to this list, so if I'm in the wrong place
please let me know. This is my first experience of
installing Debian. I'm trying Debian after SuSE and

I am building the Desktop configuration (selecting
Desktop, when given the option for partitioning and
selecting 'tasks' or bundled package installations for
particular purpose, desktop, mail server, print
server, etc )

I've installed twice now and both times run out of
disk space :-(

First time I tool the guidance recommendations for
disk partitions in Debian Installer, but 1.3Gb wasn't

The second time I read the documentaion, it says you
need 2.058 Gb to install and an Installed size of
1.5Gb to run.  But it overran the partition of 2.3Gb
Sarge Installation Manual, Section C.3. - Disk Space
Needed for Tasks,  available @ 

When I look at the Base-config.log it has run out of
space at the point of unpacking the
openoffice.org_1.1.3-8_all.deb package.

Before going through this experience again I'd like to
take some advice to reasure me I'm not going to run
out of space again. It takes me 2 days of anticipation
to do an install and this is getting to be a bit too
much of an anticlimax.

many thanks for any help you can offer.
