Soo, you're saying I have to make a partition to use the whole 320gb? Can't I just have one partition with 320gb in it?

if you want to re-install windows, yes. If not, then no

if the drive was partitioned and formatted before SP1 or SP2 was installed then the partition will remain at that size. the remaining space can be made into another partition though. so your options are limited if this is your boot drive: you have a) try and resize the parition with partition magic b) make another partition using the remaining storage or c) reformat.
