My liberal arts degree did not prepare me for this.

I run a very small professional services firm. The firm has had a great first couple years and has built up a solid client base and some decent cash reserves. I have long been considering bringing on my first partner to expand the kinds of services we can offer to our clients. Now that I have found the ideal candidate, I find myself struggling with the details around how to structure the partnership. Any recommended books or other resources to help guide a very small growing firm? [more inside]

how to divide ownership shares in a side-project startup?

I have an idea for a web project. It may have some commercial potential eventually but will basically be a night project for me and the other folks involved. Think of how MetaFilter got its start... hand-rolled / bootstrapped, whatever. My question is: how do you agree on who gets what share of any proceeds down the road? In particular, the design work will be heavy up front but tapering off after launch. Is it insulting to offer a designer a 5% share for a few days work? Does everyone brought in need to be made an equal partner? I'm sure the answer to that is no, but I'm not sure what the alternatives are. Paying people cash for work is not an option. There is no cash, and everyone involved is willing to invest some time and wait for results. The only thing is that some of us will be investing more time than others... so what to do?
