If you have no important data on the disk, or if you can backup it up to another storage device, I think that your best bet would be reformat and clean installation of the disk, creating partitions to your liking. If you want to avoid reformat you can use Partition Magic (not free) or another program that can resize the partition.

How can you reformat a drive during the installation of the operating system on another drive? It seems that there is a repeating mistake. You must install the OS on drive C: which must be located on a HD jumpered as master (or cable select) on primary IDE connection, at the end of the flat cable. C: can take up the entire volume of the disk or only part of it in which case you create more partitions. Only after OS is installed on C: you can format the other partitions and storage devices.
The reinstallation process is such that during a clean format you create C: and the other partitions. Just followup the instruction carefully. Then you are asked how to format the partition on which the OS will be installed (NTFS, NTFS quick, FAT 32, fat 32 quick). I always choose NTFS. Then the installation proceed without any further reference to the other partitions or hard disks, if there are any. Only after the installation of the OS is finished on drive c: you can format the other partitions. You do that by clicking My Computer then right clicking the drive that you want to format (excluding C:), choose Format from the menu and thats it.
