Default Hard drive partitioning

I am getting my system set up for the 002. I read that by partitioning my second drive (SATA 200g) that it will drastically improve access times. I was wondering how I would do this and should I have one of the partitions for songs, one for sample libraries, and one for various data (driver downloads, program updates, etc.)
Thanks in advance.

Microsoft How To (free)

or

Partition magic ($70, but more flexible/powerful)


Acccording to digi, partitioning larger drives improves performance, but I think they mean multiple audio partitions.
Placing samples, or any other data that you might be trying to access at the same time on the same physical disk is not a good idea, even if it's on a different partition.

For best preformance, I would dedicate and partition that drive as multiple smaller audio partitions, and then get a separate physical drive for samples.

But that's just me...
