I'd like to partition my hard drive. I have a program that'll let me do that so long as it can delete all files on the drive.

That wouldn't bother me, except I have a computer that came with XP preinstalled. That means I have no XP disk, only some Restore disks which manage to reset all the partitions that I set up. :tazz: <rotten... bloody... Piece of Crap... Last time I buy a prebuilt system.)

Is there a way around this, or should I start saving up to buy a full copy of XP?

meaning you want to change the partitions on your disk?

partition magic is the easiest to use tool for this, costs about $40 US

You can also try the system rescue disk
http://www.sysresccd.org/

This is a self booting cd that will run linux on your machine from the CD...it contains a copy of partcd, a linux clone of partition magic.
