marcus, about the swamp partition i already use it but still is not possible, the pc just get freeze.
It doesn't matter at all, the point of this subject, is if gNS will be affected this hard.
I think that now days the normal requirements must exceed the 256 mb perhaps 384 mb would be the perfect size.
Any way i think that we will find out if gNS can o can't be installed without needing a Alternate CD, after we try it. :P
Regards and thanks for the advice.

i dont expect it, but i dont see why software has to bloat so fast,
other then developers saving themselves time.
