a) I spent whole day repartioning my 10GB disk with Partition
Magic with all sorts of funny errors before I discovered version 3
doesn't handle correctly over 8G. Make sure it's version 4 you got.

b) When installing big stuff, like a game, you may end up with 400MB
of temporary files and I'm afraid even if you install on D, tmp stuff
will be in c:\windows\tmp. I'd keep C at least 1G. Ditto for NT.
