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" =)
