Actually root of 10G will work fairly well all by itself. The swap
space really depends on the amount of RAM. I suggest 2xRAM not to

This is what I have mounted right now:
ilesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 95M 56M 35M 62% /boot
/dev/sda5 9.8G 6.3G 3.0G 69% /
/dev/sda9 40G 30G 8.0G 79% /usr/src
/dev/sda11 9.8G 5.8G 3.5G 63% /home
/dev/sdb3 9.8G 3.3G 6.1G 35% /mnt/lfs
/dev/sdb4 9.8G 8.7G 604M 94% /opt
/dev/sdb5 9.8G 575M 8.7G 7% /tmp
You don't really need separate partitions for /opt and /tmp and I have
an unusual number of tarballs in /usr/src/. You have plenty of space.
