In additon to Marc's comments which I agree.. also consider...

Although numbers vary according to usage, I find that /usr usually uses 
4GB or less...

**** IF   *****

you have your data somewhere else.

I do
/ 512MB
/var 512MB
/usr 6GB
/data or some other name.. the rest of the disk

Depending on your setup you may also want to create a separate /tmp

So far have never used more than 2 to 4 GB on /usr
