I have created four partitions on an 80gig HD and am considering what kind of 
utilities to include in the same partition. I have installed WinXP home in the 
C: partition and have created other partitions for XP files and settings; 
software; and miscellaneous storage. 

Partitioning is a new experience for me. I will be using an 80 gig external USB 
hard drive and Drive Image 7.0 to back up my internal hard drive when I have 

I'm seeking suggestions on what kind of utilities/programs should share the OS 
partition and which are best placed in the software partition. For example, 
should Zone Alarm, NOD 32, Spysweeper, or Eudora share space with the OS? 
Recovery/tweaking utilities only? Both? None of these? Whatever?

I have failed to find a good web site for advice. If anyone has a useful link 
to this info, I would appreciate your sharing it with me.
