Default Another Linux newbe question

Ok i downloaded partition magic thanks to KaZaA -
I made a linux Ex2 partition around 2 GB
I installed linux -Successful - now i want to know if all my
partitions are right - they are as follows...
#####################################
Partition
Disk 1 Type SizeMB Status
______________________________________________
SWAPSPACE2 (*: Linux Swap 400.0 None
HARD DRIVE (C: FAT32 36,209.0 Active
Local Disk (*: Linux Ext2 2470.0 None
______________________________________________
I can boot into linux with those settings no problem.
what i really need to know is if the Linux partition size is correct
and will it let me have enough storage for programs, games , ect...??

That question doesnt make much sense. It kinda based on what you plan on installing, just like in windows.

If you are going to be installing games or something that is large, then it may not be large enough.

depends on what and how much you plan on doing in Linux.
