    Just installing XP Pro on a new HDD and created a 40Gig partition on the 120Gig drive. OS is installing on that partition leaving me with another 80Gig of unpartitionned space. Whats the EASIEST way to partition that as an NTFS partition for data. I know XP Pro has a way to do it but I can't remember what or where....

    Anyone? :)

    AZ, like a bauce!
    right click "my computer", go to manage...

    under "storage" there should be something like "Disk Management"

    you can think right-click and partition the space and format NTFS

    (i'm on 2k right now, but i think XP has the same menu names)
