" Well, here's how I partitioned things:
" c0t0d0s0: / 				(10240 MB)
" c0t0d0s1: [swap] 			(514 MB)
" c0t0d0s2: [whole disk]
" c0t0d0s3: [partition for metadb] 	(33 MB)
" c0t0d0s4: /var			(12800 MB)
" c0t0d0s5: [partition for metadb]	(33 MB)
" c0t0d0s6: [partition for metadb]	(33 MB)
" c0t0d0s7: /export/home		(46351 MB)
" Admittedly it's rudimentary, and I'm not 100% happy with it (/usr, /opt,  
" and /tmp are in the root partition, wtf?!), 

for a desktop this sounds sensible, except for tmp.  that's how my
home machines are set up, with generous swap and /tmp a swapfs.

and i make home a subdir under /export fs, so i can put other things
there like /export/install without having to add a disk or anything.

" but it seems a little sane for  
" now.  I also set up three partitions for the metadb's so I can have three  
" metadb's if one drive dies.  

you do know that you can tell metadb to put three dbs in one
partitionj?  -c3 iirc.
