    get a windows 98 or other such book disc that will allow you to fdisk. then go in, delete the partitions, and then create a partition with unallocated space. simple as putting a baby in a microwave.

    dude that "one drive" was set as one partition. if you're drive has not partitions, it's not formatted and is not usable by windows.

    you want to create one 160 gig partition.

    if that's too much for you, get PartitionMagic or some such crap and resize it.

    -i don't know, i just use fdisk.

    -probably, though. hell, is there even a trial?

    -no. there's guides all over the internet. there's a crackdown on spoonfeeding around here, if you hadn't noticed.

    get PM or a similar program, do your research, and give it a try. *then* if you have problems, post back and someone will do their best to help you.
