Make sure this directory is read/writeable to the VM application! Any data, especially personal, should be on a RAID array, preferably RAID 5 or at least RAID 1. Use regular, high capacity disks for that.
Note that / and /boot are primary partitions, the others are on an extended partition. Use a journalling filesystem, like ext3 or ext4, JFS, XFS or BtrFS (or even ReiserFS if you run Suse) and be generous in allocating space for partitions: /boot should be at least 512MB and / a minimum of 5 GB. Set up a daily cron job to update your system and maybe, if you're feeling adventurous, build your own custom kernel. The latter might be required, if your chosen distro doesn't support all your hardware yet. Chances are a newer kernel will solve the issue
