Default partitioning...

i'd like to partition my second hard drive, to have About 20GB to vista, and 95GB for backing up things, but for the vista one, is it possible to resize everything that’s on it to 20gb, only 16.5gb is used, then add a partition for backing up? Cause I don’t want to reinstall vista again.

Should be fine if you use an app like Partition Magic from in XP (I don't know if partition magic works under Vista) you can't partition an active partition with disk management as this will result in loss of data.

if you don't have partition magic or similar you'll need to create the partitions via disk management and re install.
