    It's good to have your OS on a seperate and smaller Partition. I have it at 10g, and the other 9 partitions are various sizes.

    I like splitting the primary HD in to two partitions. What works for me, about 15 - 20 gigs for C, for your OS and programs. And a D partition for all my important stuff, downloads, backup, drivers, etc.

    If the OS gets screwed up, I can simply format C, re-install, and all my important goodies are still on D. I'll already have the latest drivers on the D partition, so installing and tweaking the new OS is a snap.
