    Being a Mac-lover and only using WinXP (no thanks Vista) for Gaming, when I first set up the system w/Boot Camp I could not justify giving WinXP more than 30gb. Now, I have realized that my games take up too much space. I just had to erase CnC:TW to put Orange Box on my system (*sob)

    Long story short--can I resize my Win partition w/o erasing either partition/how do I do this?

    I do not believe so.

    The easiest way to do this is use WinClone to make a copy of your current Boot Camp partition then delete and re-create it and use Winclone to restore your installation.

    Yes you can. I used CampTune successfully a few weeks ago.

    Cool. I knew there were programs in the Windows world that did this, but wasn't sure if they existed on the OS X side (or would work in Windows with an OS X partition on the machine).

    There are several ways to do it. By the way, 1985 called and it wants its joke back ("Windoze").

    It's actually just a Linux boot CD, so it doesn't specifically require OS X (AFAIK).
