You will probably want numbers more like 100 GB 100 GB 300 GB.
You can use disk utility from the OSX install disk (its available under the menus at the top on first few install screens).
You won't be able to select NTFS as a partition type but if you set a partition to MS-DOS (FAT) the Windows installer will see it and be able to reformat it as NTFS during the install process.
The reason the documents have to be FAT is because OSX cannot write to NTFS, however these days Windows can write to OSX partitions so possibly the documents folder could be this.
After you have installed windows you will need to put the OSX installer back in as it has a special Windows partition on it with the bootcamp drivers etc... if your using Windows 7 you will want it to be a Snow leopard disk and you will need to download the bootcamp 3.1 update and install that afterwards as well (330 mb).

Hopefully helpful info....
