Remember that / also includes /home and /etc if you do not seperate them, I tried partitioning /etc and it errored like mad, I did not follow up on a solution i just kept it under /.

This is my partition scheme on my main firewall (no users login, or else i would have a seperate /home partition as well, VERY good idea security wise, so users/apps/files can't fill up your / partition and bomb your install or worse)

Code:
user@server[~]$ df -h
Filesystem     Size    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/wd0a     19.7G    344M   18.4G     2%    /
/dev/wd0f      1.2G   26.0K    1.1G     0%    /tmp
/dev/wd0d      4.9G    584M    4.1G    12%    /usr
/dev/wd0e      9.9G    952M    8.4G    10%    /var
Code:
/etc/fstab
user@server[~]$ more /etc/fstab
/dev/wd0a / ffs rw,softdep,noatime 1 1
/dev/wd0f /tmp ffs rw,nodev,nosuid,softdep,noatime,noexec 1 2
/dev/wd0d /usr ffs rw,nodev,softdep,noatime 1 2
/dev/wd0e /var ffs rw,nodev,nosuid,softdep,noatime,noexec 1 2
installed packages include (firewall with snort and some monitoring tools and nessus)
