I think he might have been asking for "best practices" in
partitioning, not the actual mechanics.  I would recommend putting the
/home directory on a separate partition, just to make future
upgrades/installations less painful.

Depending on what you install, your / partition could be as small as a
couple of gigs, but since you have a big drive, I'd recommend going
with about 20GB for / -- more if you're planning on running a database
or something (and if you are, you might want to put /var in a separate
partition too).  Once you've determined that, use the rest of the
space for /home -- it's probably where most of your data will go.

Of course, these are just recommendations.  Everyone has their own
personal partitioning scheme.
