so I partitioned my linux so I could get windows on there to play eve and other games without having to worry about ATI crap.

I have a 39GB partition formatted with NTFS that's completely blank right now with the standard boot partition, the root partition and the main filestsym partition from my linux. (default install on arch) I had to delete the swap partition in order to make a 4th partition for windows.

My problem here is that my only cd for installing XP is my old thinkpad rescue and recovery cd. I have used the cd for many a reformat but only on single partition drives. Is there any way to use the recovery cd only on my ntfs partition?
