WinXP does have a partitioner, but it's "destructive" partitioning. It's found in Control Panel-Administrative Tools-Computer Management-Disk Management.

I got a reference to that from someone here, can't remember, one of the helpful and knowledgeable usuals.

I haven't tried it so can't say what it's like or how it works or what. I ws looking for a free partitioner myself and that was suggested. Have a look.

The mandrake installer includes a fairly good one. Older versions can resize FAT partitions, and 9.1+ can resize NTFS.
