System for Personal Use + Data Recovery


I have a 200GB hard drive
I'd like to have Windows 98SE, Windows XP 64BIT, Gentoo Linux
I've done my share of reading for the past few months. And based on some issues i've experienced with FAT32 not being able to support the creation of any .avi over 4GB. So what I'll be doing is basically this

Installing Win98SE -1st
WinXP 64 Bit -2nd
Gentoo Linux -3rd

Now based on everything here i'll have
Primary Partition - Win98SE FAT32 -obviously
Primary Partition - WinXP 64Bit NTFS -
Primary Partition - Gentoo -
not sure of the partitions but I know i can basically have
/boot -ext3 which contains grub or lilo
/ root -ext3
/swap 2x physical memory -ext3

I'll be using linux for web browsing, chat, cd-burning, dvd authoring + burning, media (listening to music, watching .avi's), data recovering to the Extra Space that will be accessible through Windows 98SE, Windows XP 64Bit.

I've learned that there are only be 4 primary partitions on a Hard Drive. I know I can't have Windows 2000, Server, Advanced Server, Windows 2003 Server because their of the NTFS filesystem and i'll experience issues based in crosslinking and system files getting corrupted. So i'll just bring out one of these other hard drives that I have that is 5 GB and install Windows 2003 Server to it.

Can someone please share how they think I should go about partitioning my 200GB HD! Thank You

Is there a specific reason you need Windows 98? Windows 2003 Server? IMHO if you aren't running a server, the security risks in running Windows 2003 Server outweight any performance benefits you may get due to the fact that Windows 2003 Server comes integrated with stuff like IIS and Active Directory, which have in the past had lots of security holes.

Windows 2003 Server was recently released! What do you mean in the past had many security holes?
But anyways I already have Windows 2000 Advanced Server on the computer so I'm going to just finish installing my Windows XP 64 Bit, Gentoo.
