With regard to disc partitioning, something else to consider when creating
partitions is what you are going to put on them....

For example, if you have a lot of important data that changes very dynamically,
then despite having RAID of one sort or another you really need to back that
data up frequently to other media,  be it CD, DVD, external usb disc, tape,

Having that data on a separate filesystem can speed up the time taken to
backup considerably,  especially if you do a partition-image copy using dd
