nlite is a must, to get it under 2 gig installed. Surprisingly, OSX was the bloated one, needing more than 8 gig before I could even install it, although you can trim out a bit later with programs designed to strip universal binary and extra language cruft. PuppyLinux barely needs any space, it's mostly a swap-space partition for me and just because I can (mere dual-booting is for wimps, .
My 16 gig SDHC is a lifesaver, and also the best place for all my pictures, music, and documents across all the operating systems. Although I've been staring at that RunCore banner add, and might just upgrade to 32 gig, since I have to flatten and reinstall windows and update to OSX10.5.7 anyway. Maybe I'll throw on a fourth OS just for fun too
So, in short, 16 gig is possible for dual booting, but give OSX more than half the space and get an SDHC for storing documents etc, or just go for a bigger drive.
