You could start by organizing the partitions by checking out my FAQ

As for the files them self, that is once you consider my FAQ, write down what you have, Music, Videos, PC stuff, etc...
I like to use something like
Music with sub folders of Rock, Blues, etc...
PCStuff with sub folders of MBs, Vid Cards, Nics, Sound cards, etc... because I have a masive storage of drivers, BIOS updates, manuals etc...
Funny Stuff, Sub Folders of vids, pics, text.

I gather you get the idea

I do the same as the duke. One bit of difference. In the music I have it ordered by artist. Then odds and ends (singles that I like) are sorted by year then by genre.
