The only commands I'd been able to remember is apt-get and ls, dir, etc. Yeesh, big learning curve for the first few days. Anyways, I know one thing is for sure - you can't live without windows entirely, so I'd, "X" those purist's remarks. It'll save you a bit of a nuisance later, when you have to repartition and throw windows on later...
For my system I chose the bare-bones winders root, I gave it 20 gigs and linux partition got 230 altogether.
And as far as a distro, I'd say Ubuntu for it's ease of use and pretty much instant hardware recognition, but. If you want to learn I'd say LFS, it'll really pound in those commands into your head and learn you them ping'uns real good.
In those 8 years someone stole my idea for a distro called, "Dild/os"
