Well, i would recommend that you use gparted. This is a free program that you can burn and make a livecd. Then run it and it works as a partition manager.

Cheers!

Are you talking about my post. Just go to this page: http://gparted.sourceforge.net/download.php. Download the .ISO file. Then burn it to a cd with a burning program like imgburn, and you should be all set to run the program.

Cheers!

If you are thinking that you can just "copy" your "files" from one to the other (i.e. have Win2000Pro work on the new drive) and have it work, it won't. For that you'll need mirroring software....If you are just copying documents, you shouldn't need to do any new partitioning...

Excactly right dude,You would have to use some sort of Imaging/Mirroring Software to make a TRUE Copy of your hardrive.

And if you consider your self worth,Go to run,And type in Fdisk to use the oldschool method of partitioning.
