Partitioning/dual-boot question

 I'm putting together a machine for someone that will be dual boot linux and Win2K.  There's one 200G ATA-133 hard drive, but the motherboard has an older ATA100 contoller.
 Windows can only see 120G, but Kubuntu can see all 200 gigs.  So I'm assuming I can make this a dual-boot machine that uses all the drive if I partition it correctly.
 The user wants the Windows partition to be most of the 120G.  Should I make a small /boot partition first, then Win2K, then the rest as /?  Or put Windows on first?
