Minimal root does not mean minimum of space. I always leave a bit
extra, just in case. Also, 1GB recc'd root? The current solaris

Another benefit of seperate partitions is ability to, eg, resize
/usr (for systems that can do that kind of thing), indeed, with /usr
on NFS you can resize /usr without rebooting the machine (exportfs -u
on the server, resize, exportfs it again).
