do a custom install, dont select anything in x, kde, gnome, emacs. then
go through the other choices and take out things like apache, sendmail,
bind, nfs, lpr, mysql, staroffice, etc. I would do the following
partition scheme
/dev/hda1 / 500 meg
/dev/hda2 swap 128 meg
/dev/hda3 /usr 800 meg
/dev/hda4 /home rest of drive
