Optimal drive partitioning for *old* Suns?
I had the good fortune of picking up (for free), 3 Sun IPXes and 1 Sparcstation w/ Cycle 5 upgrade. However, the largest drive in any of these is 400 MB. The Cycle 5 has 64 MB RAM, 1 IPX has 32 MB RAM, 1 IPX has 16 MB RAM, and I'm still scrounging parts for the other one. So, I'm wondering, how (if at all) I should partition the drive?
Primarily, I acquired the machines to learn about the hardware and OS -- I don't have any specific task in mind for any of them. So, if anyone has any suggestions (perhaps an "assignment" of sorts), that would be wonderful as well.
