I take it that you have win98? partition magic would do it

i reccomend using partition magic. run it and right click the grey unallocated space, then format using NTFS or FAT32

u can use windows 2000 disk manager as well

google it....it won't mess anything up. If you have unallocated space on the end of your drive and u format it, its OK
when u are trying to resize the 2000 partition I recommend to backup data first. If something goes wrong it will be really ******!
also check http://www.powerquest.com ...maybe they have a trial version
