Boot Camp Dilemma! Unwanted partition creation...

    Alright, I got the cannot move files around error message, and I did everything I possibly could to fix it. So my last option was to decrease the hard drive space for Windoze XP that way the files could move around a little better.

    This worked! However, I did not want that much space (I dropped from 40GB to 29GB).

    Thus creating my problem. I quit Boot Camp at the start installation/reboot screen. And it created a different partition.

    A new partition with nothing on it whatsoever. I've tried everything:
    Popping the XP disc in there to see if it would run that
    Running disc utility (if i did it this way, I'd have to erase my data)
    Running boot camp to combine the two
    I tried downloading Drive Genuis, but that's a demo, and I cannot boot up from the CD because I do not have one.

    If there is any way to combine partitions or to delete the other one without losing my stuff, please let me know!

    Nevermind, problem solved. One of my friends had a disc and he came over and we fixed it.
