It depends very much on what you want to do. However, I would
recommend 8G for / (what leaves about 6G for /usr).

I suspect you will want to play around with the web server.
Plan 16G for the system partition (/, /usr, /var, /tmp and swap).
This will take you a long way before you start being tight on
the edges.

Hope it helps
