Dear Chuck,

1) It was my First Contact with the FreeBSD (and Linux) communities
when I emailed FreeBSD with my questions and was surprised with
their prompt replies.

I'd like to thank these people that has given me fresh confidence
and the knowledge that there are many people from the Linux and
FreeBSD groups ready to assist when the going gets tough learning
and using UN*X systems,

2) Now, I plan to purchase a new hard disk, SOLELY for the purpose
of installing and learning Linux and perhaps FreeBSD too.

   2.1) Is it advisable to install more than one Linux OS on the same
        hard disk but on different partitions?

        E.g. Red Hat, Slackware and FreeBSD on separate partitions.

   2.2) Based on above example of the 3 products, how many partitions
        must I create to install the above three?

   2.3) Do I need additional partitions for swap space?
        (My PC is a standard Pentium 200 with 64 Mb RAM)
