What are you going to be doing with it?  User file storage?  Databases?  

Obviously if you're going to be having users store files on it best 
option is to have a huge /home partition.  Mirroring or databases will 
require space in /var.  There are many other uses that require different 
config, you can't pick one without having some idea of the load.
