Plan to duel boot windows 7 and Ubuntu from a 120gb ssd. What's a good amout of space to allocate? I have 8 gigs of ram and would like to hibernate, but I could go without it.. I have plenty of space on a regular boring hard drive for the parts that don't need ssd speed

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu. This question has many duplicates and will likely be closed. To point you in the direction of a good answer, I did a search here for the partitioning tag, sorted by votes. Here is a good example of what you need to know, here is another. Good luck! – Tom Brossman Apr 9 '12 at 8:49

Well , minimum requirement is 15GB , and since you said you have lot of available space, you can go with 30-40 GB(20 GB for root and remaining for /home partition). Create multiple partitions so that you can give it to either windows/Linux depending on your requirement.

So root should go on the ssd and home on the regular hard drive? Or both on the ssd? – Thatythat Apr 10 '12 at 0:39
I don't think it makes a difference . So u can do either of these – mac Apr 10 '12 at 4:38
