When Cataclysm is released, will new players be required to purchase and install vanilla World of Warcraft, or will Cataclysm be the new starting module? The reason I ask is that it struck me that Blizzard's success comes with a potential problem in the form of the installation size. When Cataclysm is released I plan on buying a nice new hard drive for the pc anyway, but it still worries me (a little bit but not much) that it will have WoW, Burning Crucade, Wrath of the Lich King, and Cataclysm taking up half a terrabyte of data.

A quick look at my WoW folder shows it currently taking up 14gigs of space, so even with expecting cataclysm to go way over the top and take up to 10gigs thats still only around 25gigs. You shouldn't worry about it really.
