TheChemist is on a distinguished road

I ordered a LaCie Big Disk Extreme (500 Gb), which is to arrive later this week.

I'm still new to Mac and its workings, so I would like your opinion on the following:

I'd want to partition this drive into 3 segments:

1) Backup (I'm slowly running out of space on my iDisk)
2) Time-Machine (when ever Leopard plans on being released)
3) Storing my files: Docs, music, movies, etc.

And here are the Questions:

1) What do I use to partition my drive?
2) How much space should I allocate for Time-Machine?
3) What is this Journaled business? Should my drive be journaled or whatever?
4)Am I forgetting anything else?

QUOTE Thanks
