Best default disk partitioning for Linux Systems - Small Sticky Note

If you are not familiar with partitioning a hard disk and preparing it for a Linux system installation, here is a starting point or what i would call the best default disk partitioning for people who don't have so much experience with Linux systems. i too, normally forgets the right partitions to use so this serves as a small sticky note to remind me the next time am up to this task.

Depending on your disk space (Mine was 80Gb):

/boot     Give the boot partition 1Gb
swap     Give the swap partition 1Gb
/             Give the root partition "the reminder of the hard disk space"

And you are good to go.
