I don't know why you bring up directories in a discussion of
partitioning... and you don't say how big the /home will be.

Of more interest to me is how the network will be set up... if the LUGOD
machine isn't there to hand out dhcp assignments, will you use static
addresses or set up dhcpd yourself?  Are you planning to be prepared to
use two network cards in the laptop and masquerade out through an assigned
dhcp address from the campus so we can google for problem solutions from
more than one box?

Of course, you will want to setup an anonymous ftp server and put the
debian packages in the ftp directory tree.
