I wanted to try LinHES a while ago but gave up when it wouldn't install  
onto a partition. It appeared to demand the whole disk. My system is tiny  
compared to some on here (!) and I can't spare a whole disk. This seems a  
serious limitation to me...

Am I correct about this ? And, if so, is there a reason for it ?
