Okay, at least, in mount point wise. I'm a total newbie when it comes to BSD.

My server will have a few users ( probably about 10 to 15 ). The server will be gateway/router/Firewall/NAT/SSHserver for my LAN plus email server (POP and IMAP) and web based mail for those users.

I have the whole 3.4 GB drive to dedicate to OpenBSD and it will be a single OS sever. The same task currently is being done on Debian but I'm trying to run things on different platform for testing. I have /var ( 500 MB) and /home (1GB) currently on Deb. Web server's root will be on separate drive.

Can I still follow that logic on OBSD as well? Will it be good enough?

You should be just fine using the same setup as your Debian system. Just to give you an idea, my gateway is doing the same services except for the mail server, run a VPN concentrator and client, and NTP server. I don't use more than 300MB of the entire drive.

Read the OpenBSD manual on installing, specifically drive division

should cover what you need to know.
