Default HDD Partitoning Question

First off, I'm a pretty computer savvy person. Don't feel like you need to explain things simply for me.

I'm running XP and Vista off a single 160 gig drive. I had planned on running Vista as my main OS so I only allocated 20 gigs for my XP partition.

Long story short, XP is my main OS and I'm to the point now when I want to burn a CD or unpack an archive, I get low disk space warnings and sometimes there's not enough disk space to complete the tasks.

I've got a ton of free space on my Vista partition and I'm wondering if I can allocate some of that free space for my XP partition without reformatting.

Thanks in advance for any help people can offer.

I think there's a program called Partition Magic that will do that for you. I have never used it. Look into it.

Parted Magic. Burn the iso to a cd, boot from it and you can perform resize functions pretty easily. I use it all the time with much success.
