Let me start by saying Partition magic sucks and can cause you serious issue. Ok, now im not sure what you need the new partion for but windows comes with disk managment features "" or just google "Disk managment Xp" However if you are trying to set up dual boots, then this is not what you need.

Not advisable but...

If you REALLY want to do this instead of just getting a second hard drive then I would take a look at

They have a program called disk sirector that can do this.

If I had a choice I would just go get a second slave drive and go from there. You're asking for trouble when you do this kind of thing.

Best of luck.

Go to the Acronis website and download a trial copy of Disk Director? Trial version will repartition your disk. I checked. Link is below.
