I don't see the need for 7 partitions, if you use journaling.

For /tmp, use a tmpfs:

none on /tmp type tmpfs (rw,size=2G,nr_inodes=200k,mode=01777)

I use a 2G tmpfs with a 2G swap and 768M physical ram.  I'm a gentoo
user, and even compile stuff on this (it helps by anywhere from 0-10%),
so it should be appropriate for your uses :)

This leaves:


I've never seen the /sbin/init.d thing, but I'm wary of separate /etc.

/usr and /usr/local I'd think could be the same; if you break the
system, you have to do a full reinstall anyway to rewrite the binaries,
even though you could keep your configuration.

I'm just being skeptic above, of course.  :)
