I guess one could always go with a 500MB /boot, a 1 GB sway, and whatever is
left over goes to /.  The suggestion that separate partitions are need to
protect from run-away programs, security, and so on may be valid. However,
guessing the incorrect size of a partition could cause more of a problem?

Please set me straight if doing such a simple partition is really a potential
exposure to security.
