    disk management in xp is a piece of crap (vista's a little better, but still crap). Use partition magic or a gparted boot disc, they're much more powerful and intuitive.

    under administrative tools select computer management

    then select storage, then disk management (local)

    then USE IT

    realize if you resize a partition already in use you'll loose all your data unless you use partition magic or something similar (there are open source FREE programs)

    One suggestion:
    For the love of all that is good, defrag your drive before partitioning (unless it's new, formatted, or just has nothing on it.) A friend of mine lost a lot of data because she partitioned a drive with data scattered all over it. (Why she didn't back it up or ask someone with experience to help her, I don't know, but I sure got an ear full of whining for her mistake anyway.) And yeah, use one of the other partitioners. XP's sucks.
