In my ignorance of all this technical stuff, I have 12 partitions on this
/dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/hda10 /tmp reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/hda11 /vm reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/hda12 /data1 reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/hda13 /data2 reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/hda2 /boot reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/hda5 /home reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/hda6 /usr reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/hda7 /usr/local reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/hda8 /opt reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/hda9 /var reiserfs defaults 1 2
It's been working just fine for almost 2.5 years.
