Ideal partition sizes of 17 gb space.

I am planning to install slack 13.37 on an old stand-alone PIII (512 mb ram) with 17 gb disk space. I need to keep lotsa pdf, chm type e-books for programming with few other misc. documents.

I'm going to use this system for my personal use.
It has no network but I browse internet with cable connection.

Please suggest the approximate size of the following partitions I am planning to create with lvm; /root, /var, /tmp, /opt, /usr, /home.

/swap (1gig) and /boot (128mb)partition are there and are not included in the 17gb partition scheme.

I, initially wish to allocate the following;
500 mb each for /root, /var and /tmp.
1.5 gb for /opt
7gb each for /home and /usr

Please give me your suggestion.

FDISK(8)						      System Manager's Manual							  FDISK(8)

fdisk - partition a hard disk [IBM]
fdisk [-hm] [-sn] [file]
-h Number of disk heads is m -s Number of sectors per track is n
fdisk /dev/hd0 # Examine disk partitions fdisk -h9 /dev/hd0 # Examine disk with 9 heads
When fdisk starts up, it reads in the partition table and displays it. It then presents a menu to allow the user to modify partitions, store the partition table on a file, or load it from a file. Partitions can be marked as MINIX, DOS or other, as well as active or not. Using fdisk is self-explanatory. However, be aware that repartitioning a disk will cause information on it to be lost. Rebooting the sys- tem immediately is mandatory after changing partition sizes and parameters. MINIX, XENIX, PC-IX, and MS-DOS all have different partition numbering schemes. Thus when using multiple systems on the same disk, be careful. Note that MINIX, unlike MS-DOS , cannot access the last sector in a partition with an odd number of sectors. The reason that odd partition sizes do not cause a problem with MS-DOS is that MS-DOS allocates disk space in units of 512-byte sectors, whereas MINIX uses 1K blocks. Fdisk has a variety of other features that can be seen by typing h. Fdisk normally knows the geometry of the device by asking the driver. You can use the -h and -s options to override the numbers found.
