Having just done this with a Mandrake 8.2 reinstall, here's my setup and
recommendation for how not to do it:
I then rsync /usr/local/ and selected directories under /var/ (www,
lib/mysql) to a backup location under /home.
I would recommend (and will do this next hard disk upgrade):
/home -10G or remaining space on the spindle, whichever comes first.
/ and /var are a little bigger than necessary, but these days, who cares
rsyncing important directories to another partition or disk is highly
recommended though -- this is my incremental backup, with a monthly dump
