I know only three are needed but here are some configurations I've tried in the past and recommend to others. I'd like your comments on what you think of this.

/boot --> about 50-100 MB
swap --> at least twice the amount of RAM you have
/ --> 20% of the rest
/usr --> 30% of the rest
/var --> 20% of the rest
/opt --> 10% of the rest
/home --> 20% of the rest

Another good alternative:
/boot --> about 50-100 MB
swap --> at least twice the amount of RAM you have
/ --> 25% of the rest
/usr --> 30% of the rest
/var --> 20% of the rest
/home --> 25% of the rest

hmm interesting, i have actually tried something similar to this myself. I do think it is a pretty good setup, but it depends wat ur using linux for.
