I will probably not go with raid as simplicity is more important than data integrity for this box but other points taken.

For actual partition sizes how about
disk 1
1: 300mb swap
2: 250mb /
3: 1gb /var
4: remaining /usr

1: 300mb swap
2: remaining /something.probably.html

I've read that spreading swap over 2 disks can be advantageous.
