Just names that I came up with. If you'll recall, you had to tell me
the reasoning behind 'combobox'. As far as I knew there wasn't any
rhyme or reason to the names, so I just picked two. They can be
changed of course, that's just what they are now..

Correct. / is a logical volume at 20G.

I'll shrink these. I had forgotten that /home is an nfs mount, so this
definitely can be much smaller. Any suggested sizes? Just a few gig?
Let me know and I'll shrink these before I forget.

Again, names can easily be changed. We can even change them after
they're in Phoenix so probably not too much to worry about right now.

These are all ext4.
