    Have you thought about getting a second hard drive - you could move everything across that you wanted to save - then it wouldn't be affected.

    I dont think the free partitioning progs will partition with the drive
    contents in place, but i may be wrong.
    And i thought that 2000 had an option early in setup for keeping
    ones files/folders.
