[svlug] question re partitioning system

I'm getting ready to install RedHat 7.2 on my system. I purchased my
computer from VA Linux Systems. It came with their modifications to
RedHat 6.2. It came with a 30 gig hard drive.

Since I'm upgrading to 7.2 I thought I should take the opportunity
to repartition my system. It is currently laid out:

$ df -k
Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3              1517952   1336364    104476  93% /
/dev/hda1                23990      3475     19311  15% /boot
/dev/hda4             27432860   4409404  23023456  16% /home

This makes it impossible to install software without installing it under 
/home and making symbolic links. What is recommended for partitioning a
system on which I will probably install other software?

Is more information about my system needed?

Thank you,
