Cool disk partition layout advise

Hi guys,
I'm new to FreeBSD and I’m trying to setup a test web server using a in VMware esxi 5 before I consider doing anything live with real data.
I'm however struggling to see what I should have for the server disk layout.
So far I thought of having the following:
/ 1Gb
swap:	512Mb
/var:	1Gb
/tmp:	1GB
/usr:	5Gb
/home: rest of the disk (do i really need this one?)
The VM will have 60GB Hard drive and 512Mb Ram(can be more if necessary).
The server will host the web (apache), a Mysql database and a mail server.

Do you think the disk allocation is correct?
Do you think I should split the web, database and the mail sewrvers into different VM's?

Thank you very much for your help.
