[lug] Partition sizes

Since it looks like I will be migrating to a new distro, I should probably 
 think about resizing my partitions while I'm at it. I was in a hurry to get 
the laptop up last spring and took SuSE's default, which turned out to be one 
big partition. But if I may be thrashing distros for a while I want to 
pull /home into its own partition.

On a 100 gig hard drive where I plan to run some vmware virtual machines and 
try different software packages, is a 60/40 split of home/other reasonable? 

Do people generally put vmware guests in /home or in system space?
