I believe / is the only required partition.

You absolutely need a root ( / ) partition. You almost certainly should have a swap partition, and the conventional wisdom says it should be 2 times the amount of installed memory. A separate /boot partition of a few hundred MB isn't a bad idea. If you are likely to acquire a lot of files that you want to archive or keep following an OS upgrade in the future, then a separate /home partition can be very helpful. If possible, I like to put /home on a separate disk.

Is there a reason to not create the partitions that you listed?
