Default Increasing partition size

I have installed windows XP on a 5gb partition on one of my hard drives. I just now realized that this partition is way too damn small. Is there any way i can increase the partition size without having to reinstall windows and create partitions from the install screen?

If you are able to get Norton Partition Magic, that would be great. PartMag is a great program that lets you resize partitions like a breeze.

Partition Magic, absolutely! It's easy to use and won't disrupt anything on your hard drives.
