HD Partitioning

I'm thinking about ordering a 80GB SATA drive to use in a server, it being the only drive. I'm going to run Trustix (I am running it now with two 40s in it).
In theory, how much space does TSL need to setup and run and what's the largest 'storage' partition I can create on this one drive?

If you are talking a basic server apps then you will need less than a gig. The rest can be one big storage partition.
