Partitioning drives and what not

Ok, say I have an 80 gig hard drive. 40 has XP and the other half is unallocated.

My question is, how would I have slackware partition on the free space and how would I make partitions for the directories such as / , /boot, /-Someword-?

Also, what directories should have there own partition and what would be the best size?

When you start the install, before going into the setup screen you can use cfdisk to create your partitions.

Just follow the instructions while installing, they're pretty straight forward in telling you how and what to do to install.
