  1. I wish to partition my HD. I am running XP Home Ed.
    How do I do it. Device Manager does not allow.

    You will have to use a utility like Partition Magic to do that.

    I agree with realblackstuff, if you have just the one partition using the whole HD this will be the master boot drive which XP's drive manager wont allow you to partition, like Realblackstuff said use the latest Partition Magic this will allow you to do what you are trying to do.
