Not sure if you have tried this, have you tried shrinking the volume in disk management yet?
EDIT
A few more things to try before shrinking. Disable the virtual memory on the drive your shrinking, consider stopping system restore aswell as this uses 15% of your HDD space. Once its shrank, you can enable it again.

right raffaz i think you might be onto something here i have tried disk management no luck

but theres good news and abd news the bad news is

i disable system restore and virtual memory and ran diskpart from cmd and used list disk list volume and shrink and it has freed up only 250MB

BUT if i re enable system restore and virtual memory it will use another 250Mb of my free space so if i re enable it reboot disbale it shrink i will now have 500Mb so if i do that a few hundred times i might get my 15Gb i want for xp ??? what you think

its a last resort, obviously id prefer something simpler but nothing seems to be working at the mo

Have you tried acronis disk director? The 260 build is vista compatible, and it allows you to create a bootable CD for the job.
