It all depends on how many programs you use. I have a 25 gig OS partition and 135 gig partion for all my files.
Out of that 25 gig I use only 5, so if you have little than 20 is more then enought, if you have alot then go for 30 and even 40 but that should be it. Everything else should be on the secondary partion, including your swapfile.
You might also want to make more then 2 partions to organize even more.-=Marcin=-
