    Partition Magic won't do that for you? I used to do that all the time with PM. Hmmm. Ill join in on the curiosity then.

    You can do it using Partition Magic, I did it recently. Other that or use gparted.

    [1] Resize the primary partition to make room for the other partitions
    [2] Partition the new free *unpartitioned* space
    [3] Clap

    my mistake. i've been trying to use pm's 'split' function, which is disabled on my primary. instead i choose 'create a new partition' and all went well, and now i'm dual booting linux and xp. thanx.
