Is there anyway that I can create a partition on my hard drive without reformatting?

Partition Magic. I am not a huge fan, but it works most of the time I suppose. :)
Dynamic repartition for anything other than a journaling file system is "dangerous" (TM 1978-2004, MS Corp) :)

I have used it, and it did work for me; on the rare occasions I have needed it. (Very rare).

Cheers.

I have used magic partition many times, and it works perfectly for me.

Actually instead of going and repartioning my hard drive, I just took one out of an older computer( pentium mmx *cough*) And just took out the 3 gig harddrive, and I guess I will just boot up from that.

well as it turned out 3 gigs wasn't enough space to do what i want to do with it. So I just formatted and created another partition. That old hard drive was slow anyway. It was neat to try though.

now i am in dll hell
