Default Virtually Increasing the Partition Size

Greetings,

When I engage "The Movies" game, it reports an error and exits.
I figured the error - game checks first partition on system for free space (must be 600 MB, however it uses the system disk for temp file storage, D: in my case). Since my first partition, which I use as a crossroad while booting to my other system installs, is only around 70 MB large (FAT32) - game won't run at all.

How can I virtually increase the size of my first [c:] partition, to enable the game to run? Just so the sistem display it as a 700 MB partition or something so that I can run the game.

You can't as far as I know. What is the installer? Is there an MSI? if so, you might beable to by pass the freespace check.

Well, I install the game just fine, but the problem occurs when I try to execute the game...
