/boot does not (I've had /boot be a symlink to a dos partition (don't
swap doesn't, of course.
/dev/hda2 193M 32M 151M 18% /
/dev/hdc1 968M 842M 116M 88% /usr
/dev/hdc3 1.7G 1.6G 95M 95% /var
/etc does, unless you want to play nasty tricks with overwriting a skeletal
/var with a mount. /tmp I'm not sure of.
Personally, if I anticipate needing a lot of swap, my swap partition is at
the top of the list. If not, it can go on a slower drive. Next is /home,
then /tmp, then /var, then then the root fs and finally /usr. But it
all depends on how you use your system, really... I do a *lot* in my /home
diriectory, ie, lots of compiling, etc, which is why I prioritize it so
