Disk-Space Requirements for Internet Explorer 5.5 Installation
---------------------------------------------------------------
Internet Explorer 5.5 and Internet Tools Beta Setup installs the
majority of its files on the drive where the Windows operating
system is installed, regardless of the installation location you
chose. To free up space on your hard disk in order to meet the
Internet Explorer 5.5 disk-space installation requirements,
you must free up space on the drive where the Windows operating
system is installed.
