I used Disk Director Suite 10 to resize the 27.9 GB C: drive, so that I could create space for a new partition onto which I would install XP Pro (I have 98SE on the 27.9 GB drive). I went to create partition, did all the normal steps, picked active partition (second try i picked primary) but both times the computer restarted how I left it...with a 27.9 GB drive rather than a 13GB drive with 15 gb free space. what did I do wrong? Please don't tell me to buy a new computer. alright, my bad. A quick search revealed that I need to use the rescue CD? I'll try it.
