I intend to make /usr as big as I can.

It was thing like /home I meant - it's not mentioned in the installation
guide, and only here and there in FAQs. As I said, I'm quite new to OpenBSD,
so I wasn't sure which areas I would need to beef up...
Here's what I'm planning now:
o / - 100MB
o swap - 256MB (in case something breaks and sucks up _a lot_ of RAM :o)
o /home - 512MB (would 1GB be useful, or just too much?!)
o /var - 100MB
o /usr - all the rest (~2GB!)
Does that look reasonable?
