ok, thanks kane and omega.
I already have an 80g SE for booting and everything else, so I might wind up reinstalling XP so I can partition both drives.
New question now though...
Why do you have a 50 gig partition just for booting? Does having extra space on the boot partition increases speed?
thanks to captain also, guess I missed your post somehow
Just thought of something else now though. Can I partition a drive if there is already data on it, or do I have to reformat it?
