You can either backup your data and perform a
"clean install" of Windows XP, or you can purchase
and use a third-party program such as Partition Magic 8.

Partition Magic 8 has a utility program to change cluster sizes:

Don't bother, it won't gain you a thing. Far more trouble than it'll be
worth.
