160 GB primary drive

Well, I installed Windows 2000 Professional on a 160 GB drive, and the
CD only had service pack 2, so long LBA story short I now have about
21 GB of unallocated space at the end of the drive. What should I do
with that? Is there any way I can merge it with the rest, or will I
just have to make another partition?

You can merge it with the rest, using a partition manager such
as Acronis DiskDirector. My personal preference is to do it
exactly the other way: Install Windows in a 20 GByte partition
and put all my data on the remaining 140 GByte partition.

The easiest, and safest, is to just create a second partition. Depending
on your computer, accessing beyond 120G before the Windows drivers load
could cause wraparound and a big mess.
