' is a good tool that you can use to manipulate your partitions. Partition schemes tend to be personal to some. Yours seems to be exotic. May I ask why you have it configured as such? Which distribution?

Thanks, onebuck. I am a new one to Linux. I followed some suggestions from the Internet. Please refer to below:
The first time I gave very little to / but the setup failed. Then I gave 5G to /
/dev/sda10 5.0G 456M 4.3G 10% /
Someone said /boot won't be more than 128M then I gave it 92M
/dev/sda9 92M 32M 55M 37% /boot
I need to save some documents and maybe codes under /home then I gave it 10G
/dev/sda7 9.9G 1.2G 8.3G 12% /home
I don't sure what's this for then I put about 500M. Any suggestion?
/dev/sda14 494M 11M 458M 3% /local
I ran some large program such as Matlab under Linux. Then I put 18G here
/dev/sda11 18G 7.6G 9.4G 45% /opt
I am not sure about this one but I think when I do my work I may need some space to store temporary files
/dev/sda12 2.5G 147M 2.2G 7% /tmp
I would like to setup new software. I think most of them will be installed under /usr, and I put 22G here
/dev/sda8 22G 6.1G 15G 30% /usr
I did't know what's this for; however, now I think it saves lots of log and message files. I need to enlarge this to 2G maybe.
/dev/sda13 494M 469M 0 100% /var
Currently, I use OpenSuse 11.1 which I think is one of the best distributions. I used Suse in a German company before, and I think it's cool. Welcome all suggestions about this. Thanks a lot.
p.s. I tried slackware as a virtual machine under Windows. I think it's really keep the rule of KISS but I think it may not suitable for a newbie like me. I also need to do some programming under Linux, and I haven't got much time to deal with Linux learning itself... But I will try my best to learn. Cheers.
