    Howdy there, you havnt stated what your system specs are so im guessing here that you have windows XP installed without the SP2 Service pack. Earlier versions of XP are restricted to a max of 137gb Drive. Updating to SP2 should cure this problem.

    to split the drive, boot windows from the CD and go through, but in the middle of the installation, it will ask you which drive to install on, you just highlight the drive and press d then enter to delete the partion(this removes all the data) then press C and assign 100gb and press enter, then you will See (Drive C: 100 Gb, then below it, Unpartioned space:100 gb) just press C and enter and there you go, and continue installing windows...
