I have managed to build my new PC and install all my software etc, great!!
Being cautious and taking advice, I set up several partitions, however the one I have installed windows, documents and settings, etc on was only 10gb and is now running out of space everytime I try to install things!!![/quote]10 GB is a bit low for an XP installation. You can save some space by disabling hibernation mode and the system restore feature and also by moving the swap file to another partition. Additionally, you might move the “My Documents” folder to another partition also.
Since this is a fresh installation, I’d start again. Assuming your HDD is big enough, I’d suggest 40 GB for the Windows partition.
