Re: [PLUG] Linux distribution for virtuous machines

Last time I looked, a base install of Ubuntu server did not use a GUI 
and was between 500 - 800 MB, depending on the "servers" installed 
(http, ftp, ssh, dns, dhcp, etc.).  My fully loaded server install right 
now has an installed size of 977 MB, with another 100 MB in /var.  I'm 
not including /home since that is all my data.  No desktop or other GUI 
is installed.

root@data1:/tmp# uname -r
