Yesterday, I re-installed 5.1 for various cock-ups I had made.
I made the partitions/slices? as follows, the usage is shown as how by 
KDE disk free
/	2g		used 10.7%
/var	1g		used 9.4%
/tmp	1g		used 1%	
/usr 	11.9g		used 24.4%
then there appears one which I didn't make, 
devfs	1024B	used 100%

Do I need to make a partition/slice for devfs and if so roughly how big?
What does it do? I haven't got that far in the book yet?
