    I need help installing Vista on a CF [Compact Flash] Card.
    The highest size I will be able to purchase, (as of 7/15/07)
    will probably be 8GB, as they are priced within the $100
    price tag. I know 8GB would easily be sufficient for XP,
    but I need Vista, preferably 64-Bit, for enhanced gaming
    performance. I will have a larger HDD (500GB), but the CF
    card will be used for increases system performance (lower
    seek times, faster read times, etc).
    What I need help on is simply this:
    What is the minimum size a Vista installation be shrunken to ? :confused:

    I know that Vista comes in many flavors, but any
    size figures besides "Home Basic" should be O.K.
