    Yes you can: follow this link. Or, change the size of the partition using space from the other partition. Gparted will do the job and its free, just do a search for it.

    Best bet though for a faster system is to increase the size of your RAM.

    I see you have an XP OS that is on SP1, upgrade it to SP3 or it will be wide open to infection.
