Do du commands on your various filesystems to see how much you're
using on each. Put /var and /home on one slice and everything else
on the other. Add up what you're using for everything else, add a
percentage for growth, and make the everything else slice that big.
Make a swap partition (I use 100 Mb, YMMV), Use the rest for /var,
/home, and /tmp. HTH.
