For starters (into building indexes):
"All columns used in the partitioning expression for a partitioned table must be part of every unique key that the table may have." -- See
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/partitioning-limitations-partitioning-keys-unique-keys.html
Note the first User Comment.

If the table is InnoDB, it is strongly advised to build your own PRIMARY KEY rather than letting the engine add a BIGINT for you.

As for what indexes (aside from the above points) to have, the question is best answered by looking at the SELECT statements you will have.
