Partitioning for RH 7.1 and Win2k

I would like to dual boot Win 2k and Red Hat 7.1. I have a 30 GB h.d. and I would like to partition the HD so it has 2 partitions for Win 2k one for the filesystem on one for media files. I was thinking that I could designate 15gb to the Win O/S, 10GB to media files partition, 5 GB for the Linux partitions, but I am unsure what will provide the best performance. I know that I also have to load Lilo into the MBR but am also unsure how to configure that. I guess my questions would be how do I set the partitions for the system in Dick Druid or another application including the swap file. Will there be an issue with NTFS? Is there any thing that I need to know? I'm very reluctant to just play around with my system as I am not the only one who uses this system and if I hose it and it's not available my girlfriend will restrain from any and all sexual activity, as I am busy and don't have the time to find another girlfriend. Just kidding....actually any links to this information would be helpfull. I can't afford to have much down time over a few hours, and I feel with the littlest help I can accomplish that.
Thank you in advance....
