There have been quite a number of discussions about this top in this 
group, so I'll not repeat them.  Just take a few moments and search the 
archives for them.  They'll range from "just let Disk Druid do it" to 
"many partitions for many purposes."  You'll find some good reading and 
lots about the various strategies for partitioning.

Once your head stops spinning from all of the different scenarios you'll 
find discussed sit back, take a deep breath and relax.  Most of the 
advice about proper sizing has been rendered moot by the addition of 
LVM.  You can change sizes on-the-fly, so you don't have to be so anal 
in judging the initial sizes.
