    Partitioning a hard drive kind of splits it into parts.
    You can make one 80gb hard drive act as a 30gb and a 50gb for example, and yes you can access both of these. It is the same as having two sperate drives in your computer.

    Get yourself Partition Magic and use that. Very easy and fast to do.

    He said he already knew how
    and anyway, once you partition your hard drive it will look something like this for example, here is mine.

    This is all partitioned off of one hard drive

    If you don&#39;t need Partition Magic then I advise you to stay away from it. It can really screw things up bigtime.

    It is better to use a bootdisk and good old FDISK. Plenty of tutorials can be found on the internet.
