How do I partition my new Dell Windows XP system? Can I do it with the Reinstallation CD?

Unless you use something like Partition Magic, you'll be reinstalling everything from scratch.

WinXP [and win2k] disk management can create partitions in unallocated space only. So if you do not want to use a third party partitioning tool you will need to start from scratch and reinstall os and apps.

2 main choices are

1) fdisk (destroys all your data)
2) Partition magic (doesnt destroy data)
