Marco, I read this article already twice, some month ago and a week ago.  
Really I considered it as too difficult for me. Also I think, this is  
interesting for tuning, but not strictly necesary as long as we ahve 1  
GB-harddrives, which is mostly the reality today. Pls. let me know if you  
think I am wrong.

well that would be great, but for the moment I would be happy to have a  
Fedora based desktop fitting on 1GB HD.

so I see somehow we agree, although the focuses are a bit diffrent :-)

We'll work it out, Ingo.
