Default Hard drive partitions question

Hi, I'm thinking about installing openSUSE in a dualboot setup with Windows xp which is currently installed. I know that during the Linux installation process I will configure how much space from my current hard drive that I want to partition for Linux. My question is, once it is installed and everthing, when I boot into linux, will I only be able to see files on the linux partition, and vice versa when I boot into windows.

Sorry if this is a stupid question...

One more thing, whats a good standard size HD partition to set up for linux?
