| this lt came with oos 7 already installed. after i tricked the oos 7 | partition a few times to reduce size, i repartitioned drive with oos | down to sda1= 1.6 GB system, sda2= 43.0 GB oos 7, sda4= 8.4 GB recovery, | sda3= extended sda5= 1.1 GB boot, sda6= 3.1 GB swap, sda7 thru | sda10= 11 GB linux os, sda11= 84 GB home, sda12= 66 GB open use. if you have a NAS available you could "dd" the the hdd to .img and free up the space. Personally I would pull it, resources permitting, and replace with a another hdd, say 7200 or 10k rpm to buy some speed. Not sure if your system will support a ssd but might be worth a look. Then again, depending on use, there is the consideration of diminishing return of value for so old a system when a newer system can be obtained for <US$300 or so; leaving this in the "I love the challenge" category.
