That eliminates one concern, at least. I made that inquiry because
during my very early trials with Linux, RH5, I failed to provide enough
space for /. The install failed until I pulled my head from my
posterior :0

Yeah, it's plenty. When I get to the expert partitioner page and unmark sda3 to be formatted, I see no way to tell it to install on sda1 and leave sda3 alone. Clicking the 'next' button gives a message about installing on an unformatted partition. I haven't been able to install yet, since I don't want to take the chance of wiping out Ubuntu. Since I just want to play with some other distros and see how they work.
