advice on partioning scheme


I dual boot slackware and win XP and have a 20 GB harddisk.

Now the partions look like this:

swap (500 MB)
Linux (5 GB)
WinXP (6 GB)
Data (8 GB)

I want to move my /usr and /home directories and make the disk layout like this:

swap
Linux
WinXP
Linux /usr + /home
(I wanna make the first linux partition smaller, moving XP back and then create a new partition for /usr and /home from the Data part which is now fat32).

Does this sound like a good idea?
I'd just like some advice before I go ahead and do all this moving around.

Thanks

HC
