Sorry, my mistake.
/usr was to be written /
I would rather have / -- 15 GB
and /usr, /tmp, /var on it.
If your /var dir is not big enough you will have problems with
apt-get not having enough room to put downloaded packages. If your
/tmp dir is not big enough you'll have problems downloading large
files such as ISO's. The /tmp dir is where it is stored until the
download finishes and it is written to where you wanted it put.
You said nothing about your / partition. This is where /tmp and /var
will be if you don't make them separate.
