Thanks. I knew I was missing something obvious.
Any thoughts on how I should partition it, now? 20Gb plus the old
4Gb, got to leave some room for Win95 for other family members.
Also, can I move, say, /usr to the new disc (e.g mounted as
/usrnew) by simply copying the contents of /usr to a new partition
and then editing /etc/fstab to make /usr /usrold and /usrnew /usr?
