I'm new to list, so first of all, hi to everybody.

I have a 2GB card, and following your wiki, I've partitioned it with 2
1GB partitions. So:
# df -h
Filesystem                Size      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/mmcblk0p2            2.0M      1.8M    168.0k  92% /mnt/initfs
none                    512.0k     68.0k    444.0k  13% /mnt/initfs/tmp
/dev/mmcblk0p2          954.5M    684.3M    221.7M  76% /
none                    512.0k     68.0k    444.0k  13% /tmp
none                      1.0M     60.0k    964.0k   6% /dev
/dev/mmcblk0p1          966.8M      4.0k    966.8M   0% /media/mmc2

My first attempt on installing KDE has failed, basically cause I have
not enough space on device. Afer reading a little more, I've seen that
xfce and e17 are also available.
I'm new to maemo and to n800 gadget, and I think I already know what I
want in my maemo, but before trying more crazy things, I'd like to ask
for advice.

So, here are my questions:

1.-) Are 2GB enought for e17 and a basic combo of apps? (claws, mpayer,
a feed reader, browser...)

2.-) Which could be a good partion table in my case? Just one part whit
2GB of space? 2 partitions and /dev/mmcblk0p1 mounted at /opt? (I don't
really now yet were are new apps going to be
installed /usr/local? /opt?...)

3.-) Good set of n800 links? I already know maemo.org,
http://tabletschool.blogspot.com and they look very fine...

Thanks in advance for any advice!
