    Software such as Acronis Disk Director make it possible. Surely though, you could just create another partition out of some currently unused space?

    I could create another partition but I don't have much left. ;)
    Besides, that would require another install of XP.

    I think your best option is to back up your XP install and use bootcamp.

    Unless you have random unpartitioned space on your mac.

    You'd need to find a non-destructive partitioning utility that can modify NTFS/FAT32 (which ever you use) as well as HFS+.

    Either that or two separate utilities, one for each.

    Either way you should probably back up everything.

    It might be just safer to redo the xp install after all... :D

    Right now, there's nothing important on my computer. :p
