    how would i do this
    I have my harddisk partitioned off in three sections one section for 15gig mac osx another for programs/saved files/movies/pics/ and the like.. around 75gig.. and the final one is a 7gig restore rip of osx leopard...

    im running 2.3ghz dcore2 upgraded 10krpm hddisk 1 gig ram upgraded from 512mb
    bought last year not sure what model it is exactly.

    the problem is my partition for the os is full 15 gig with 300mb open on partition and i want to use autoupdate tool to install new updates and what not but i cant download to the osx partition and install because i dont have enough room i want it downloaded to my larger partition and run... how do i do that or do i have to download everything individually.... and install updates?

    You really should have more space on your system partition. The reason for this is that OS X uses some of it for swap, and if you have very little space left over it will cause your system to slow down noticeably.

    That being said, which updates are you trying to install? You may be able to download to your other partition from Apple's site, then run the installer and tell it to install on your system partition.

    This is what you need:

    Ideally, you should just merge the OS X and programs partitions as there's really no need to keep them separate, and as ADKhikerVW mentioned, being low of disk space is actually a detriment to performance.
