    it would be easier to burn it to cd & install from there. when mandrake starts to install it will give an option to shrink the xp partition, just accept the sizes & continue to install (or you could make yor own sizes) before doing that, i recommend you defrag xp a few times as it stores files all over the hard drive & may cause problems when it comes to partitioning.
