It depends on what you want to do.

Do you need more disk space for one OS?
Do you want a vfat partition which all OSes can write to?
Can arch and slackware share the same swap partition?
How many drives (for example C do you want for Windows?
How many partitions (for example / or /home) do you want for arch?
How many partitions do you want for slackware?

Or a more basic question...is all this confusing and you just
want a simple plan that will work?

In that case, let Windows have partitions 1 and 2. Then make
partition 3 an extended partition that contains all the remaining
disk space. Now you can create partitions starting from number 5.

As far as the hard drive is concerned, you have 3 partitions.
However you operating systems will be able to use the 3 real
partitions and the extra logical partitions.
