I'm thinking of just doing 2 partitions for now till I get an external drive or a networked one. 120gb isn't much to work with, especially if you want to partition it to 3 drives. Or is it?

I would suggest keeping the ntfs partition with all your files and use manual partition to delete Windows, first create a swap (1.5 x RAM, or equal to RAM depending on how much RAM you got), and then use the rest of the free space to make a root partition (ext3, mount point /).
You could change the ntfs partition to ext3 later on, but if you don't want to backup all of your files now, you could just stay with ntfs for now.
