Re: Partitioning for a Hurd install

Hi David,

As you are putting the Hurd in VirtualBox then I'd suggest accepting the
defaults for Linux (other) and either no swap partition or at most 0.5GB.
You can always increase the memory if you need it and the virtual hard
disk will expand up to 8Gb which should be plenty.

Good Luck
