Depends on how much disk space you have but I guess about 6GB would be enough. If you install all the packages on slackware CD, it comes to around 3 GB. I have a good amount of disk space so I've separated out partitions like this:
/dev/hda1 - /boot (100 MB)
/dev/hda2 - / (about 15 GB)
/dev/hda3 - swap (about 1 GB)
/dev/hda5 - /home (about 87 GB)
rest of the space is about 10 GB, which I've kept aside for anyother distro I want to try. Slackware is my primary distro and I use it almost 100%.
