I'd make / a bit bigger. If you keep a couple of kernel source trees
going at any one time you'll find you start needing to trim them down.
if you've only got 2 gb to play with. My latest kernel tree is using
352M so if you keep a couple of trees going you'll use a lot of space.
I'm assuming you've got a fairly large drive so make / about 4 gb.
