This is something I never understood. Someone told me to put /var in its own partition because if it fills us (with log files, or whatever) it will crowd out other stuff and make the computer unusable. I did that, and then /var filled up, syslog and cron complained about not being able to write files and the whole computer froze up. Now I put /var inside / and haven't had any problems.
