    Can someone tell me how much HD space Panther takes up?

    I'll be installing it on a 1st generation iBook with a small HD and want to make sure there would be enough space for all the apps and other stuff.

    So, how big is Panther?

    Cheers,
    Grizzly:cool:

    Depends on what you really installl.... All languages? All fonts? All printer drivers? X11?
    If so, you could end up using 2.5 GB orso.....
    If not, thus only 'needed' stuff: around 1.3 GB.

    Give or take a couple of MB's... :)

    Minimal Install will be around 1.3-1.5 GB's and the ultimate will be 2.5-3.0 Gb's...

    How do you do a minimal install of a mac OS? Every time I've installed 10.2 or 10.3, it always installs all the print drivers and languages... and never asked. The only customization I can ever make is upgrade or format... :confused:

    On one of the screens before you install it, there's a button at the bottom called Customize. Click that, and it will let you choose printers, fonts, etc.

    I believe there are third-party apps that will do this, but I don't think there's an official way.

    I noticed that there are receipts for them in the library/receipts folder... is there any way through their package receipts? What exactly is the purpose of the "receipts" folder then? :confused:
