    Well you make this a bit difficult, but lets start with what type of OS are you running? If you have windows 2k It will be pretty easy. If not You can Fdisk in dos and create Logical drives. If you are looking to make it all one disk you will have to Start all over.

    Any way what OS do you have?

    You should have 38 gigs (roughly) of unpartioned space, you can probably format it and create a partion in windows, and if not you can boot of the Win2k cd and use that to partion the empty space.

    right click my computer and go to "manage"
    you'll see disk management in there. you'll see the big grey "unpartitioned space" Just right click it and create an extended partition. then make a logical partition. (use fat32 as the file system). 1.99 gig system partition huh... Did you create that within the 2k install, or did you do it with a boot disk. Sounds like you got fat16 on that drive. I would upgrade it to fat32.

    its already in ntfs, besdides there is no manage tab in windows 2000...

    I sent you that email. As for adding to the C: drive you have to reinstall to do that. when you setup with win2k you set the partitions in the setup menu. once you put data on that partition you cannot change it. You could use partition magic but I have heard that it does not play well with win2k.

    Latest Partition Magic (6.0) runs in Windows 2000 and is a thing of beauty. Works wonders.
