Thanks, neutrino for the reply; I'll probably go with your second option of raid 1 and a backup drive. As for the partitioning scheme I know my description is pretty vague; this is what I'm thinking of separating on a Ubuntu 8.04 server:

/boot 100MB
swap 1.5GB

LVM (not sure on the sizes)
/
/usr
/tmp
/var
/home

other possibilities:
/usr/local
/var/www
/opt
I know the initial sizes don't matter that much because of LVM but if someone could give me some suggestions of sizes that would be great. Also if the layout is alright and maybe some suggestions to make it better.

Thanks!
