I've been having a great experience learning about DSL by monkeying with a frugal install that, so far, has been working great on an ancient Compaq desktop (only 167Mhz 28 MB RAM!).
But I fouled up the install in some way or other, so I attempted a frugal re-install, thinking I'd be dumping the previous setup. Well, everything works fine again, except that how the new install is using disk space seems different than before. It almost seems that I've simply duplicated the install on another part of the disk (rather than replacing the previous one). Sorry for such a vague and noobish description of my situation!
Anyway, below shows how my disk space is allocated. Is there any way to tell from this whether I've got the system set up properly? (If not, no biggie. It's working fine, and I can always wipe it clean and start again.) Thanks in advance.
