Probably. Information overload is as bad as complete lack of any
information at all in many cases. But these two are pretty essential
links to have.

The tuning(7) manpage has a lot of nice tips.
A relatively old post in my weblog has a description of how I
partitioned the 200 GB disk of my workstation at home, which might also
be nice to read:

This is (unfortunately) quite impossible, given the tendency of these
pages to be autogenerated, to include random "session ID" numbers, and
be full of irrelevant crap, like advertizing material.
