    Do MAC users partition their hard drive much like what people do in windows?

    normally i do this in windows: (lets say a 500GB drive)

    Drive C: (25GB) for OS
    Drive D: (100GB) for Programs
    Drive E: (375GB) for Files/Etc

    Does this also hold true for MAC? If so, what would be the best partition allocation for a 500GB drive given that you would like to install windows as well. (not sure if ill be installing windows as dual boot or only call windows via vmware-is this right?)

    That depends. Dual-booting will require a minimum of two partitions. What are you going to be using Windows for?
