Yes. You can do basic partitioning using Windows 2000's disk management 
feature. - Right click on My Computer and click manage - then find disk 

If you want to do more advanced partitioning - like extending the 45gig 
to one 120gig partition etc.. then I suggest using a program called 
partition magic.
