How much hard drive space for this?

I searched the site for this info but didnt find any. So, if i missed it and its a repeated post...sorry!

I want to install windows seven on C and windows XP on D. If i want to have a good performing computer how much space should i give to each one (in GB). its a 140 GB hard disk and the rest of it will be divided to these:

One local disk for softwares only
One local disk for my dad
One local disk for meyself
One local disk for other.

How would you divide a 140 GB hard disk into these?

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Didn't you ask this yesterday?
I would get a larger drive, or just use XP or Win7 and have it 1 large partition since it is so small.
