Well, the real issue is that you have to "partition" (so to speak :) )
your space up front.  I personally devote 50 GB to /home and 25 GB to /
.  That's working out fine, and I still more than 20 GB free on both  .
 I think a Logical Volume Manager could allow dynamic reallocation of
these partitions, but I don't think that will be necessary.
