I just install 4 partitions as you may see from /etc/fstab:

I was not too certain, wheather /boot can be mounted on ext4 with F13, 
so instead of investigating very far, I created a separate partition 
with ext3.
I loop-mount /home into /data so that erverything which may become large 
and larger is in /data. I also link mysql, named, and ldap from /var/lib 
into /data.

The partition sizes are as follows:

[[email protected] ~]# df -k
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda2             12095032   5612516   5868116  49% /
tmpfs                  1964368       240   1964128   1% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1               198337     41380    146717  22% /boot
/dev/sda5            462972776  47677060 391778020  11% /data
[[email protected] ~]#

NOTE: do not use LVM with F13 and ext4. It took me quite a while to find 
out, that the "errors" I had on ext4 like:

Jul 17 14:10:35 casablanca kernel: EXT4-fs error (device dm-0): 
ext4_mb_generate_buddy: EXT4-fs: group 80: 25516 blocks in bitmap, 25515 
in gd
... (hundreds like this)

where due to LVM (as opposed to ext4). Then I faced LVM out (needed a 
new installation), and no more problems with ext4.
