This is just a suggestion mind you:
/swap ~64 MB
/usr ~ as large as you can
/boot ~ 25MB (a bit big)
this is a REALLY basic setup, there is some documentation available in most
installation guides as to partition size and
how many you need depending on your purpose, eg. server vs workstation vs
if you want, you can just make one big partition as well (for simplicity not
the LInux LOader LILO should be put on the materboot record of the primary
drive, you will be able to choose wich os to load from there upon boot. To
have windows boot as default, use linuxconf (once installed and you're
logged in as root) to make the change.
These are just suggestions and by no means the only way to do this...
