I recommend leaving the recovery partition if you plan to keep using Vista
at all, shrinking the main Vista partition, and creating at least three new
ones: an ext3 partition for Linux, a swap partition, and a VFAT partition
for data that can be shared between Vista and Linux. Sizes will depend on
Now that one can write to NTFS partitions easily (ntfs-3g has been
around a long time, and I believe even the kernel ntfs mode can do
read/write), having a FAT partition seems useless.
I'd recommend, though, keeping /home in a separate partition.
