Default How Do You Add Partitions?

Besides using the Windows Setup thing, is there any way to create partitions where you can specify the exact size?

I don't have a floppy drive to d othat fdisk thing either...

software such as Partition Magic could be used after your OS is installed. You run the risk though of losing data while messing with your drive parameters. Always best to plan ahead and create your partitions when you install your OS.

Partition Magic is great. But the Windows Setup CD is better if you ask me.
