Question Partitioning Notebook with 4Gb (faster) and 16Gb drives for Bodhi Installation

My Asus EEEPC 901 has two solid state drives, a faster 4Gb drive and a 16Gb drive. Installing Bodhi Linus 5.0 I want to use the 16Gb drive for things that will grow in size as I add apps to Bodhi. What do I need to specify as mount points such as /, /home, /var, etc? and which should go on the slower 16Gb drive? Do I need to partition the larger drive?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

/usr will be most of the apps. /home will be saved files, settings, created content for apps. putting /usr on the big drive will work well. if you are going to create a lot of content or download a lot, you may put /home there also.

I can absolutely agree with whansard. /usr and /home are going to be the most changing/updating folders, and if as you have,
space that would allow to set up those folders in separate partitions, you will be much happier. I also now recommend a swap
partition rather than a swap file due to the file reserving space on a drive rather than having the swap space in it's own area.
I believe bodhi sets up a swap file, but I changed to swap space that I already had from a previous linux installation.
