Hello. I'm a brazilian CS student and Debian user who has been flirting with 
NetBSD for some time. I'm impressed with the minimalism, consistency and 
good documentation of the system. I was in the process of building a cheap 
computer with spare parts to play with NetBSD; my goal was to finish it before 
my Operating Systems course next year, so I could study the code.
But my main hard disk failed, so I had to take the spare 1GB HD to my main 
workstation. Since this space is too little for Debian, I decided to run NetBSD 
right now.

I installed and configured everything successfully, and I'm very
happy with the OS, but I'm short of disk space. I'd like to hear any 
considerations and tips about optimizing space; links to reading
material are welcome. 

I can't compile the Phoenix browser because it needs a lot of Mozilla 
sources, so I'm stick with phoenix-linux. Is someone working in a phoenix 
precompiled package?
