    This is a Linux forum not a windows forum, you may rankle some feathers...
    but you can create partitions to your hearts content during a clean install..
    You can try partition magic, after losing some $ of course..
    If you have unpartitioned space you can use disk management (XP):
    Start->control panel, click performance and maitenance, click administrative tools, double click computer management shortcut, expand the storage item in the console window, click the disk management item.
    Now right click the free space and choose new logical drive from the shortcut menu. Computer management starts the new partition wizard...

    and I thought Linux was hard...

    take a pen and notepad when you visit the bookstore...
    of course if you are talking 2000, NT,... you'll need to look further...

    also im pretty sure that you can go into the computer properties and i think its under the advanced tab there is an option "environment variables" to change the default location of where at least some of the things you wanted. hope this helps!
