As to Colonel Schell's requirement of providing for installation of Slackware, etc. i suggest an additional /usr partition, but then the number of primary partitions would exceed 4, and that would entail the creation of an extended and logical partition (i hope i am on the right track this far--a few words of wisdom would really help here, Fred!).
/dev/sda4 /media/data ext3 defaults 0 0
You don't create it at during installation you create it later. Just leave free space for it. Then use gparted when Mint has been installed to create a new partition.
