The Debian Partitioning wiki is badly out of date -
Could you make a contribution here by email,
or on the wiki?
Also, the Installation Guide, is behind the times:

Revision History Revision 3.5 26 Dec 2005
===== Base case design: Modern desktop system
Lets start with a modern desktop system: 4 or 6 core Intel or AMD.
The motherboard likely has some hardware RAID capability.
Lets say we start with half the RAM slots filled = 2x4GB = 8GB,
and 1 hard disk (HD) = 2TB.
We want to partition with:
Swap - 32GB = 2x max RAM
OS 1 - primary, "Debian Stable"
OS2 - testing. "Debian Testing"
We will later want to add more OS partitions, virtualization, and more
HDs, RAM & SSD, as time and money permits.
We want a file system that can grow with minimum human maintaince &
administration effort as we add HDs. The file system should permit easy
file system table integrity checking, while the system is in operation.
There should be a good backup solution specified, using an easy to use
GUI tool. The backup should be to a different disk drive (perhaps on a
different computer), or perhaps an inexpensive ($100-200) removable
tape system. Perhaps something backing up on to DVD, for smaller sets
of data - text files, etc.
We should keep in mind current & future planned Ubuntu disk partition
management technology, if that isn't yet backported to Debian, to enable
switching to better methods, procedures & sw as those become available
But, we should focus on what is available right now in:
That is all the time I have to give to this email. Also important are
the concepts below, which would be crucial to include in the wiki. :
== Adding SSD
== Adding Hard Disk 2
== Adding Hard Disk 3+
What are your guides/suggestions?
