You should also add a swap partition aside from the root partition that you have allocated.
The rule of thumb is 2 times larger than your physical RAM.

Aside from that, I guess your good to go. This link might be useful to you for comparison purposes although the setup in it is dual-booting slackware 11 and win xp.

good luck!
