I use a setup like this

/dev/sda2              3869036    546880   3125620  15% /
/dev/sda1                14705      6710      7236  49% /boot

on a Sparcstation 4 that would not boot after I at first had
partitioned the whole disk as one partition.

I find having a separate / (and thus probably separate /usr, /var,
/home, and whatnot) a bit messy on small systems. A separate /boot
is nicer according to my taste.
