Default partition scheme
Is there a recommended partition scheme in terms of percent for a standard linux installation and a linux firewall?
Right now I have about 200 megs on /var, 100 on /usr and 1,7 gig on /.

Well...don't forget about Swap!!
Actually I like to create a single large partition for /, and then a smaller (or maybe larger one depending on the function) for /var.
In freebsd...I typically do something like this:
Swap = 2x physical mem
/ = 256M
/tmp = 256M
/usr = 2G
/var = 1G
It really depends on what you are trying to do

It really depends... if you are going to be keeping alot of logs then you want to beef up /var.
Swap 2X physical mem is a great rule... i also like to spread it across multiple disks if I can.
