Hi Jeetenbhattarai,
if your D drive is empty (or if you are sure, that there isn't anything you need on that drive), you can erase partition D, using Disk management (Start --> Run --> diskmgmt.msc), than create the new partitions, of the desired size.

Elbereth.

D is empty?
Then its simple.
Get a boot floppy from www.bootdisk.com
Boot to the floppy & run fdisk
Use fdisk to re-do the D partition into 2 partitions.

CAUTION:
- DON'T USE FDISK TO DO ANYTHING TO THE C PARTITION...just the second one.
- Backup important data to USB Flash drive, online storage,  or onto another hard disk, etc. Just in case something goes wrong.
