you go into your device manager. right click my computer.manage..left click disk managemant. and you will see the other disc. now right click and partition away! It will ask make new partition and warning everything will be erased etc..But first do you have your os on your other drive?

Note that you can't re-partition your system drive while you have the OS running from it without third party tools (such as Partition Magic).

Not true. IF you set up a partition for the boot disc and there is unallocated space you can partition the unallocated space.

Yes, but you can't re-partition the space already allocated. That was my point. And it sounds like he already has that space allocated.
