  1. I'm running xp professional. I used the disk manager to remove a primary partition. The disk space that is left over says it is unallocated. Any ideas how I might incorporate it back into the C drive?

    You will need to resize the C partition in order to regain the unallocated space.

    but I don't know how to do that. Do I need additional software like Partition Magic?

    For resizing NTFS, Partition Magic is the thing, there are other programs, some free, that can resize FAT32 partitions.
