    i just installed vista on my 2.2 macbook pro 2 days ago to give it a try
    i didnt think i would wanna use it so i only gace it 32gb so i could access the windows files on OS x however now that ive used it for a couple days i want to shrink the os x partition and expand the vista one

    the only way i can think of doing this is to create a third partition of 50Gb from mac drive and then merge it with the vista partition

    i have no idea how im going to do this or if it will even work

    but does anyone have any thoughts ..
    thanks

    In OSX boot camp utility should be able to change the partition size.

    Oh right. When i wanted to change the partition size i could quite easily, perhaps because i hadn't installed the operating system yet.
