Figuring that you are doing a complete reformat and reload of XP, why not start over and create larger partitions? The time you spend on tracking down software (such as Partition Magic) could just as well be saved if you just started over.

It's not a good idea to make the primary partition that small. Just remember that all your programs and the OS itself are going to take up that space. I like to make my primary partition like 20 GB and use the rest for storage.

I agree with the reformat again. It's a lot faster than having to go out and buy a program that can fix it in Windows. Do that later...
