    It depends on what programs you want to load in each OS. If it's not a whole lot of programs, make two 10gig partitions (C & D) and a third for storage(E). Remember, WinME can't 'see' the NT File System (NTFS), so make sure you format everything in Fat32 if you want ME to have access to the XP partition.
    XP will install a boot-loader that you can choose which OS to boot to (at start-up).

    My plan is to install me just to play games smothly.

    So i think that i will install 10gb for me and games instalation files.

    D, 15 gb, for xp and program files.
