/ - 500MB

/usr - 20GB

Here's my installation (df -h):
Code:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2             9.6G  342M  9.3G   4% /
/dev/vg/home           15G  8.7G  6.4G  58% /home
/dev/vg/music          15G  9.2G  5.9G  61% /music
/dev/vg/opt            10G  785M  9.3G   8% /opt
/dev/vg/tmp           5.0G  389M  4.7G   8% /tmp
/dev/vg/usr            15G  7.7G  7.4G  52% /usr
/dev/vg/var            10G  1.9G  8.2G  19% /var
/dev/vg/gentoo32      8.0G  3.4G  4.7G  42% /mnt/gentoo32
none                 1007M     0 1007M   0% /dev/shm


I also have a 4GB Swap partition (since I have 2GB RAM). If you want to be able to easily expand your partitions, I would definitely suggest using LVM (that's all the /dev/vg/* you see above). An emerge of gnucash maxed out my /usr partition; growing it by 5G was a snap since I had the spare space--it would have been much more difficult without LVM.

[edit]I would definitely recommend a larger /home partition, unless you intend to use this as a server and not a desktop machine. You'll fill 500MB up faster than you can blink.[/edit]
