Default Installing XP On a Partition... Help!

This is my first time installing Windows like this, so please bear with me...

I just got a new 160GB HDD, and went through the Windows setup. I formatted a 30GB partition for Windows and all other programs, and I want to use the rest for music, games, movies etc. Problem is, when I bootup, only the 30GB is recognized... What do I have to do to get the other 130GB up and running? Thanks for your help!

Go into disk mangement and format the rest there. You won't get the entire 160gb, take at least 7% off 160gb, which is about 148gb or so.
