Does anyone know of or have standards for OS installs.  We are working in a
contracting environment and need to come up with standards that can be used
for our
production boxes.
    There is a question about what to include under the root partition.
Some folks favor separating out /var, /home and putting them in their own
the main reason is protect against the root slice storage from being eaten
up by users or logging applications.
    In addition, we are looking for recommendations as to what size
partitions should be.  Our disks are 72 gigs.
    Any point of view will be greatly appreciated.
many thanks
