    My computer currently has one hard drive that is
    partitioned into 2 drives (C: and D:). WinXP is installed
    on C:. I deleted the D: partition to make room to expand
    my C: partition so that it uses up the entire drive. How
    do I make my C: partition larger without screwing up the
    stuff already installed on the C: drive? Thanks...

    Brian, you would need a 3rd party application to do this non-destructively.
    Two come to mind: Partition Magic by Powerquest, and Partition Expert by
    Acronis. Both work fine, can be downloaded from the internet. The latter is
    about $45 to download from www.acronis.com
