Hey people,

I'm in the process of installing a new 250 gb Hard Drive on my G4 MDD tower, and reinstalling the Os X 10.5 on it.

(once I've got the working DVD drive!)

should I partition part of the Hard Drive just for the Os X on it? Say Around 15 gb? or should I not bother with such a thing?

any tips on getting the best performance from my ancient machine?
QUOTE Thanks
