separate /boot just seemed reasonable to help avoiding corruption since 
it's so critical. the fedora installation defaults to that, and i saw no 
good reason not to go that way.

i neglected to mention swap is a separate partition too, of course. it's 
2Gb. i've got 1Gb ram.

/boot: 99Mb
/: 53Gb
my external audio drives are usually 250Gb

used space, including swap but excluding the external drives and some 
audio that's currently on /home, is 9Gb. this system has quite a lot of 
the planet-ccrma software on it, including devel packages, as well as 
some stuff i've compiled separately. so, i'd be inclined to say you can 
easily do it in 10-12Gb, but it obviously depends on how many and what 
sort of applications you need.
