Tip: Updating drivers yourself is not difficult, but there are programs that will more or less do it for you.
See my List of Free Driver Updater Tools for reviews of the best ones out there.
You might need to update drivers in Windows when a new piece of hardware you've installed doesn't work automatically or maybe after upgrading to a new version of Windows.
Updating drivers is also a great troubleshooting step when the device is having some kind of problem or is generating an error, like a Device Manager error code.
If you suspect you are running short of disk space, secure your data before updating and repartition your system.
There is no general rule of thumb regarding how much space each partition should have.
I map a 90 gig SAN disk and Dr D clone it: # drd clone -p -v -t /dev/dsk/c4t0d0 --- first a preview ======= 11/12/09 MET BEGIN Clone System Image Preview (user=root) ======= 11/12/09 MET END Clone System Image Preview succeeded.
(user=root) # drd clone -v -t /dev/dsk/c4t0d0 ======= 11/12/09 MET BEGIN Clone System Image (user=root) * Reading Current System Information * Selecting System Image To Clone * Selecting Target Disk * Selecting Volume Manager For New System Image * Analyzing For System Image Cloning * Creating New File Systems * Copying File Systems To New System Image * Making New System Image Bootable * Unmounting New System Image Clone * System image: "sysimage_001" on disk "/dev/dsk/c4t0d0" ======= 11/12/09 MET END Clone System Image succeeded.

Space requirements depend on your particular partitioning profile, the software selected, and the version numbers of SUSE LINUX.
The hard disk controller manufactured by Promise is currently found on high-end motherboards in numerous computer models, either as a pure IDE controller (for UDMA 100) or as an IDE-RAID controller.
As of SUSE LINUX8.0, these controllers are directly supported by the kernel and treated as a standard controller for IDE hard disks.
The additional kernel module is required for RAID functionality.
