SQL 2005 and partitions

I installed SQL 2005 on my new server I knew that the whole package will take considerable amount of space.My "C" partition is 12 GB but all updates etc took some space....I could install it on "D" partition but I guess I missed that step.I modified page file so now I have around 2 GB space free.I created a new page on diffrent partition.Should I consider removing SQL and reinstall it to the bigger partition ???

you dont have to reinstall SQL Server; instead you can specify the drive when you creates the database
