It turned out to only be a 10gb drive, but that still allowed me to do this:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5             471M  367M   79M  83% /
/dev/hda1              30M  1.7M   27M   6% /boot
/dev/hda6             2.8G  1.6G  1.1G  57% /usr
/dev/hda7             3.8G  2.1G  1.6G  56% /var
/dev/hda8             2.3G   33M  2.1G   2% /tmp
/dev/hdb1             3.7G  620M  2.8G  18% /home
/dev/hdb5             3.8G  1.7G  1.8G  48% /var/www

Plus a 2gb swap file, which was a problem with my last layout. w00t. (/var still contains a backup of /var/www, so it'll be much emptier once I'm convinced that actually worked.)

Oh, and fortune(6) spat out this gem:
The following quote is from page 4-27 of the MSCP Basic Disk Functions Manual which is part of the UDA50 Programmers Doc Kit manuals:

As stated above, the host area of a disk is structured as a vector of logical blocks. From a performance viewpoint, however, it is more appropriate to view the host area as a four dimensional hyper-cube, the four dimensions being cylinder, group, track, and sector.
. . .
Referring to our hyper-cube analogy, the set of potentially accessible blocks form a line parallel to the track axis. This line moves parallel to the sector axis, wrapping around when it reaches the edge of the hyper-cube.
