That's a strange question - if you create multiple partitions
that is usually because you have a particular use (and hence
mount point) in mind for each of them.

You need at least /boot (100M, I always use a conservative
ext2 for that), and /. A separate /home partition allows you
to install a completely new system later without touching
any home dirs - rather essential on a multi-user system
but quite practical on a personal one as well. I always
create a separate /audio partitions as well (for audio
files and ardour sessions). If you have a second disk
that's where that one should go of course.

You mentioned Arch. I switched to Arch two years ago,
coming from first Suse and then Fedora. The first time
can be intimidating, but there's a lot of good docs,
you will learn at lot, and end up feeling back in
control of your system. I'm admin for 12 Arch systems
now, and I never looked back.
