This is good advice, although one should beware that "/home" may comprise the
vast majority of the storage space in use, particularly for companies,
universities, and other organizations with lots of people. 9GB for the boot
volume, ~75 GB for homedirs, and ~30GB for other files is what one fileserver
of mine looks like.
