So on the second disk drive, which is around.. 20GB, IIRC, we want /mail, /sql and /forums, and maybe 512M of swap. On the first, system files etc. and swap. I

How does that sound?
1) You will find maintenance easier if you stick to default location for
storing stuff, so mount your partitions on those mountpoints: By default
user's mboxes goes in /var/mail, databases in /var/db.
2) You might then consider making your second disk dedicated to /var
entirely rather than fragment in multiple partitions.
3) I recall on your original list you had swap on both disks, this may
or may not have any impact on performance compared to just one swap on
the first disk.
I would do something like this:
The /share is non-default, I like to have this for groups. Say your
organisation have various working groups, files belonging to those
should not reside in users home-dir, but rather be shared among all
The above has some further advantages: on the second disk is all the
data users create, you can wipe ad0 in a reinstall if needed, there you
only need to restore config-files in /etc and /usr/local/etc.
