You can use whatever size you wish from your SDcard towards this, it just depends on what size you create the partitions at. You can even use 100% of your SDcard if you really wanted to... not that I could see why anyone would actually want to do that...

Something you could also look at... is the data2ext option, it moves the /data partition onto your SDcard... so ALL applications will be installed onto it by default. (This is not a good idea for a SDcard below Class 6)

Personaly, I have a 16GB SDcard... with 128MB swap and 2048MB EXT4 for apps (remainder in FAT32... der).
