Lightbulb ideas for partitioning a dual boot 180 Gb HD

I currently have a WDC 180 Gb hard drive running Windows XP Pro. I want to try a dual boot system with Linux to give it a test drive. Here is the current partition table of my hard drive.

/dev/hda type size start end
/dev/hda1 ntft 20481 1 2611
/dev/hda2 Extended 151213 2612 21888
/dev/hda5 ntfs 20481 2612 5222
/dev/hda6 ntfs 102399 5223 18276
Free 28333 18277 21888
Free 8 21889 21889
