Im about to order a dedicated server to move all of my resellers onto from another host. I want to get your opinions as I know there a number of different thoughts on this matter.

The server is a quad core Q9550, 8 GB of memory and has 2 1 TB drives in RAID 1.

What do you believe is the best partitioning setup for the drives? This is what I'm thinking about doing.

/boot 1GB
/tmp 2GB
/swap 10 GB
/ remainder of the drive.

I know there are some personal preferances, and just want to see what else is out there.

If you are using any control panel like cpanel then I suggest you to go for the standard partitioning which your host suggests.

I agree with thewebedge. Here is was cpanel suggests:

Partition Size Partition Contents
/boot 70 Megabytes (MB) Kernels, bootloader configuration file.
/usr 8+ Gigabytes (GB) cPanel, Apache, Apache logs, and most applications.
/var 8 + Gigabytes (GB) MySQL databases, cPanel configuration, system logs, and mail queue.
/home Fill to disk All cPanel user accounts.
/tmp 1 Gigabyte (GB) Temporary files.
swap 2x memory (RAM) Overflow from RAM contained on your disk.

I would also suggest you make /tmp no-exec

my suggestion is you must go with the default configuration of cpanel which you can approach your host
