Yes, here is an SF tutorial that will provide links and info. There are also many tutorials at the site where you will download the free software (in this case, Partition Wizard's free bootable CD):

Thanks. Is there any reason I can't use existing tools in Windows, like this one: Partition or Volume - Create New ?

I have not made any partitions myself, but the members that have say that the software that I suggested is easier to use and has more capablities.

I think that the tutorials will be fine, and I don't need a lot of options. I avoid installing new software unless I really need to.

James ~ Those are the ones I was going to use. Working on it now - thanks!
