It is possible. I usually set more than 1 partition when installing but in this instance I would suggest Partition Magic. As long as the HDD is large enough that your new 30G partition will not choke XP.
Run defrag before creating.

Accroding to the prod specs it should be no problem. I myself have never used it.
I am sure the trial will be all you need though. Unless you intend to make a habit of changing the partitions around.
