Swap size? Read here:

FOr the rest I suggest putting a single partition for / and not separating / and /home. If you have data that needs to be stored like media files and documents that need to survive a wipe and re-install, keep some space aside for another partiton. After install we can configure that space, create a partition and mount it somewhere convenient.
