I would make one system LUN at say 20GB and one data LUN with the rest 
of the RADI5 space.

On the system LUN I would make a /boot filesystem and a LVM partition 
with at least a / filesystem and swap. Usually I make /, /usr, /opt, 
/home, /var and /tmp but it varies a bit depending on what kind of 
machine it is.

The data LUN I would use as a PV directly for LVM and not bother with 
partitions at all.
