Hi, I'm setting up a brand new iBook with the 80G hard drive. It's mostly going to be used by one person. Anyway, I would like to partition the drive to keep (at least) the /Users directory on a separate partition, and preferably the Applications directories on separate partitions so that OS X reinstalls aren't going to be too inconvenient. I'm thinking this would be an OK layout to begin with: 15G / 12G /Applications 6G /sw (fink) 35G /Users 12G spare volume, mounted as /Volumes/scratch or something, could be mounted elsewhere when required, or used for a linux install or something. The machine is mostly to be used for software development and paper-writing, with digital lifestyle bits and bobs thrown in (picture collections, a bit of music, etc.) Maybe some dabbling in music production at the Garageband level. What I want to know is whether given the size of OS X and a typical collection of applications/user files whether this is a good layout. I would hate to be wasting space by massively over-allocating, or find myself having to re-partition again soon because I've under-allocated. Thanks.
