In order to keep it on the outer edge, instead of migrating all over the place because of fragmentation, you need it in its own partition.[/B]

XP will use a little under 1Gb to install itself...so whatever you think you would need for programs is up to you...I use a 5Gb partition for mine...I'm runnin 98se and usin a total for 3 gigs right now for windows,, so i figured that 4gigs would be perfect...
