One important fact to consider is the limited amount of RAM on a stock A1200.

Each piece of third-party system software needs a certain amount of RAM. Each partition needs a certain amount of RAM for buffers. And each low-level action on a partition (like format or validate) needs a lot of RAM, the bigger the partition, the more RAM is needed.

IMHO you should stay within the limits of WB 3.1, i.e. <4GB disk with <2GB partitions. Everything else will cost you so much RAM that some software products, especially games, might refuse to run.
