I think Frank is right about having to set your partitions from the boot CD. Before you can create new partitions D, E, etc you first have to shrink C since it currently occupies the whole physical disk. But you cannot shrink C while you are running the O/S from that drive/partition. Even Partition Magic will require that the partition resizing is performed before booting Windows - only the resizing instruction is given within Windows: the machine will require to restart in order to carry out the resizing before the O/S loads.

to get it!
