Do I need to leave 8MB of unallocated space?

    When you install windows and you set up your partitions, it always insists
    on leaving at least 8MB of unallocated space. I can't remember its purpose
    but I think it definitely had a function.

    When I partition my drive in Vista Home Premium do I need to leave some
    unallocated space in the same way? If so, how much?

    Thank you

    Would you mind expanding on what you have said? What did the 8MB do for
    XP?....and why does Vista not need that any more?
    Thank you

    It's been a while since I opened Outlook Express. I now find further
    answers to my questions. If any of you out there are still listening, then
    Thank You Very Much.
