[RndTbl] Partitioning in Linux

Well, not really partitioning. I know how to do that. At work today, the
question of how to set up some Linux servers arose. To put it in some kind
of context, when I install Ubuntu Linux (server), by default it creates a
small /boot partition, the creates a LVM partition with a / ext4 partition
and a swap partition inside of that.

Is that optimal? Recommended? Some would say that /home, /tmp, /var and
others should reside in separate partitions/filesystems. Discuss. :-)

Thanks for any input!
