Hello. I boguht a 40 gig hard drive and instaleld it. I tried to partition it into 4 partitions. I did 20% for the c: one and tried to do 20% on each, except that when I DO make it, it only lets me use 40% basically giving me control of 60% of my drive other than 100%. What am I doing wrong?!?!? Thank you.

You create the primary paritition first for 20%, next you create an extended partition for the rest of the size of the drive 80%, then inside the extended partition you create logical partitions for whatever size you want the remaining.
