I use a 20 GB partition on an 80GB drive for XP. Then I have a 120GB for all my data.

I usually user separate discs, but in the event that I had a big disc, like Chris's 320GB disk. I'd partition 30 - 40GB for windows and the rest for data.

I also move the mydocuments folder and desktop (so profile in general) off of the C drive. it makes formatting after major windows problems so much easier.

I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
