I have an 80GB drive on a new WIN2K install, I want to partition it to have a second drive letter without reinstalling. How can I do this?
Like say, 10GB for OS partition and 60GB for the second partition.

  You can user Partition Magic here is the link to the trial version.

  Good Luck

  You can also try Partition Manager

I could have sworn there was a way to do it from the computer management in administrative tools.

  Just to be clear is the whole hard disk already partitioned so that Win2k uses it.
  If not then Right Click on My computer, select Manage, and then Disk Management.
  You will also be able to tell when you open this up if indeed the whole hard disk is
  already partitioned with Win2k.

  If it's not right click on the available partition select create partition, then the size
  and then format it.  You will want to boot from the other OS's CD and make sure
  to install it to the correct partition and your done.

Partiton magic is good,

I like Partition Commander because it works on 2003 too

Diskpart is a Windows tool that can help too
