Paritions to install Ubuntu

That's what I have on my 80GB HDD:

512 MB ext2 /boot (system cannot boot from XFS partition)
1 GB swap
12 GB xfs / (quite big, but I store my pbuilder environment here,
about 10 GB should be ok for an averabe user)
64GB xfs /home

Having a separate /home partition gives you the ability to reinstall
your system without having to care about your configuration/data.

Best regards,
