Planning Partitons during installation

Partition needs to be at least 4 GB and should be on the primary partition and must be formatted with a Linux filesystem (own Partition) / (root)
Partition should be a minimum of 5 - 10 GB, or as large as needed to store the user files (own Partition) /home
Should be 100 - 200 MB and needs to be in the first 1024 cylinders of the disk for older BIOS versions (own Partition) /boot
Partition should be at least 1 GB based on the number of applications installed (own Partition) /opt
Partition should be 1 GB and temporary files cleared by the OS periodically (own Partition) /tmp
Partition should be 5 - 16 GB based on the number of installed packages (own Partition) /usr
Partition should be 3 -10 GB - large enough that log file size does not affect the rest of the computer (own Partition) /var
Partition should be 1 - 1.5 (ideally twice the size) times larger than the amount of installed RAM. Linux can use either a swap file or a swap partition for the swap area. Create a separate partition, whenever possible /swap
These directories have system configuration files that are necessary for Linux to function properly and should be located on same partition. /etc. /bin, /sbin, /lib, /dev, and /proc
