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.

I'm sure Partition Magic will do it but I don't fancy spending yet another £40
to get it!
