Ok so i have an 80 GB HD. Its a laptop. I've run the Vista Upgrade Advisor and says the only holding me back is a few drivers and some other programs. Here are the only things im worried about uninstalling(it doesn't say i have to just that it might not function properly): Synaptics touchpad driver and the ATI Destop component. I don't know any other touch pad drivers so any help on that would be great. And i dont even know what the desktop component but i would like help on what that is also. And i am planning on installing Vista on a partition and i dont know if any of that will matter, so if i install it on a clean partition will i need to use the driver cd my XP came with or does it have its own drivers.
Installing on a clean partition means none of this applies with great meaning to you. Install Vista anyway and see if it works, if not go back to XP.
The only other things i need to know is how to make a partition and how to delete it and combine the empty space with the bigger partition.. I have a 80 GB HD and i wanna make a 25 gb partition for Vista. Any help on this would be great.
Are you saying that you have an 80GB partition with XP and you want to split this partition up to create room for vista?

give that a read as i've given the steps there...the only reason i suggest this route instead of paragon..is that i don't know how to use paragon...but the steps shown in the above thread..i do know work
what you're wanting to do...is dl the gparted live cd iso image (post #9)
then once you burn that image as an ISO image (post #11)
then you boot to the cd and follow the steps for resizing a partition (post #7)
once you resize the C partition..you can create a new partition in the blank space...either with gparted or during the vista install
