A quick check of the slakware site indicates that you can install a
minimal setup with 50MB of space. It doesn't indicate what the space for a
"typical" install is. But I would guess about 1.5GB of space. Many distros
take that much space as the "typical" includes full developer support for
console and X. It contains most server services. And generally would
represent a winblows install with all the macroslop dev software and other
server products.

I would recomend the first order be to trim back from a spoon fed
install. It takes a long time to select what you want, but you don't end
up with many things you wont need and actually represent a security risk
since they may run with some default config you are unaware of.

Nothing is hard if you know the answer or are used to doing it.
