Hi,

I am loosing disk space and wanting to install .Net Framework on my W2KSP4
Server. I only have 400MB available, is this enough for me to install .Net
Framework?

That's enough for the Redistributable, but not enough
for the documentation and examples in the SDK.

You should keep in mind that W2K Server needs
some breathing room in order to function well as
a server, and that shaving available space down
to 100MB or so ( which can easily happen as a result
of temporary file creation and storage of compiled pages )
is not prudent, as W2K might choke.

I assume you've tried freeing as much disk space as youcan,
but try checking the size of your paging file, besides looking for
temp file you can delete.

You might be able to make it smaller by 2-400MB,
and not affect your sever's operation.

Also, if you're using SQL Server, shrink the size of youir tempdb.

I was pleasantly surprised to recover
1.1GB of disk space by doing that.

Another thing you could do, if you have another
partition available with free space, is change the
location of the paging file to that partition.

IIRC, W2K Server still requires a minimum-size 2MB paging file
to remain in the boot partition, but the bulk of your paging file
being moved to a different partition will release hundreds of
megabytes of free space in your system partition, perhaps
even more than 1 GB.
