I would say -0- blocks to Ubuntu, unless it's going to do more for you
than just build Haiku.  You can build Haiku on "Haiku stable".

I think 20 Gb would be OK for that partition.  That's a little less
than twice what I'm using already - so more would be better, but the
other Haiku partition gives you some flexibility.

Even if you for whatever reason insist on cross-compiling Haiku,
I'd get BeOS installed first and then try out a hard disk image,
if you haven't already verified that your hardware is going to work.
