comment What's the best way to partition your drive?
+1 on the swap partition. Actually, the theory behind swap and boot being separate is that if you make those partitions close to the zero cylinder, they'll be on the disk tracks closest to the spindle, and will be slightly faster on disk seeks. So having your page file space and your boot loader closest to center can mean performance increases. Unless you're using solid-state, then never mind.
