2.5G swap will be fine.

If you're using LVM for the main Linux partition (I would), you'll also
need a small non-LVM partition (say 100M) for /boot, since grub does not
currently understand how to handle LVM.

I agree with the suggestions of adding a separate FAT32 partition for
sharing data between Windows and Linux, and also leaving some
unpartitioned space so that you can try another OS at some point (e.g.
FC5) without having to remove or otherwise fiddle with your current
setup.
