Solaris 9 partitions - Sun Solaris

I have an old Ultra30 I am trying to learn on. It came with 1 x 4.5G drive and Solaris2.6. I tried using the original layout as a starting point and changed to 2 x 36G when I installed Solaris 9 04/03. It was not long before I realized my original partitions were too small. Does anyone have a recommendation what size I should start with? I want to re-image the machine with Solaris 9 08/03 as there are too many patches and interdependencies for my limited exposure with the 04/03 version....

    Default Solaris 9 partitions

    I have an old Ultra30 I am trying to learn on. It came with
    1 x 4.5G drive and Solaris2.6. I tried using the original
    layout as a starting point and changed to 2 x 36G when I
    installed Solaris 9 04/03. It was not long before I
    realized my original partitions were too small. Does anyone

    to re-image the machine with Solaris 9 08/03 as there are

    exposure with the 04/03 version.

    If its just a machine to test with and you don't want to test
    using multiple partitions, the simplest is just whats called a
    slash-swap installation. Create a small swap about the size of your ram,
    and a 100Mb for LVM metadb's. The rest of the space just assign to the
    root (or slash) partition "/".
    A production system should usually have a separate var and export to
    prevent logs or users causing problems with full root filesystems.

    This is the kind of question that will however get a lot of people
    shouting and screaming about the "best" partitioning method, personally
    I think the answer is generally "it depends" =)
