Re: Partitioning advice, 13.9 GB HD

On some suse installs, I couldn't get the install to work because it said that 
ReiserFS, which I use for all partitions,  needed more space.  It accepted 
smaller sizes for ext2 and ext3, but I prefer ReiserFS.  Don't remember how 
much it required, but my other boxes are set all above 100 MB, and I'm not 
worried about 30-40 extra MB, I'm worried about wasting space with 1 and 2 GB 

My friend has just emailed back saying that Debian doesn't use opt at all, 
that's a quirk of suse, so I'm changing the setup to add more to var, where 
he says the deb files go (var/cache/apt/archives), so I'm looking at this:

/               2 GB
/boot       140 MB
/opt 	        500
/tmp	        1 GB
/usr          2 GB
/var          2.76 GB
/home     5 GB/balance
swap      500 MB

Should swap be larger with 128 MB Ram, dealing with 700 MB+ iso images (my 
burner is on this box).  Did I make opt too small?

Thanks again
