Your easiest/safest is to use the least number of partitions possible. Fedora/Redhat installers seem to take that approach. Typically, they create a "Memory X 2" swap partition, about 100MB /boot and the rest is the root filesystem. Tyically, Apache installs its server root in /var/http, so if your system is primarily a web server, you might want to reserve a special large partition to mount there.
