Cent OS 4.1 How to partition

Im basically putting cent os on my labtop. Its a dell. Im going to have a dual os of that and windows. Basically im stuck at the disk setup window of the installation. Heres what it looks like

HDA1 2gigs ( Thats dells stupid utility shit )
HDA 2 26 gigs ( thats windows and what not )
HDA 5 10 gigs ( thats where i want cent os )

Thats the partitions, Heres what the screen looks like to give you a better image

/dev/hda1 vfat 2047 1 261
/dev/hda2 ntfs 26106 262 3589
/dev/hda3 extended 10001 3590 4864
/dev/hda5 ntsf 10001 3590 4864

What partitions do i need? i know its swap, and ext 3, and 2 but how big should they be? Or how do i go about doing this? I always seen to screw up when it comes to this, this this time i want to do it perfect
