Greetings to you too.

I am afraid I did not get your question too well.

But, if you want to use only Linux Mint on it, then I dont see why there is an NTFS partition. I do not know much about reiserfs.

According to me, the best option would be:
One ext3 partition for root (/)
One ext3 partition for home
One linux-swap.

Generally, the swap must be 2 times the size of your RAM.

I am sorry, but I don't understand much of what you say. So I have to guess: you want to know how to parition a harddisk correctly for Linux?

OK, here we go:

Thanks for the answer! This photo old, therefore there is section HTFS, now I do not have section HTFS more. Only Linux. At me a question I why I cannot keep archives and files in it ext3 partition for home section? I can see only that there is. I cannot write down anything on this section of a disk ext3 partition for home? Only root can! How to do that I the user could do it? To the first at me costs linux-swap 2 GB. 2 ext3 partition for root (/) 10 GB, 3 ext3 partition for home, I have correctly marked ? Write how correctly to mark a disk or show on a photo? And what section to create for media, video? In what standard correctly
