Partitions Size


Im about to install Slackware 10 and I have partitoned my hd the following way:

swap ---> 128mb
/ ---------> 100mb
/temp ---> 100mb
/var ------> 100mb
/usr ------> 2gb
/home ----> 9.5 gb

It is a P2 400mhz, 256mb ram and 12gb hd.
Are the partitions' sizes ok? I have doubts, specially with the temp and var partitions.

if you can manage to keep your [/bin /sbin /etc /lib /boot] and [/tmp] under 100MB then it looks good, i'd myself go for 1/2 a gig or even 1 gig for my root drive, same with /var, but i like to be safe. My rule of thumb for swap is to make it the same amount as my RAM.
