Hi, Chris,

The only way you can re-partition your hard drive without losing all your programs, is with a 3rd party partition manager, such as Partition Magic or Bootit NG.
Otherwise you will have to start from scratch, and re-install XP on a clean hard drive.

I have two hard disks on my machine. The master drive is divided into
several partitions. In theory, if you keep all your important data on a
separate partition from the OS (usually C:)  then if you ever have to
reinstall the OS then your data is relatively safe. I use Norton Ghost to
keep backups of the C: drive on the second hard disk.

There are a lot of perfectly valid reasons for multiple partitions on the
same drive. The idea that having your OS on a different partition of the
same physical drive makes your data safe is simply not one of them.
