It's very easy to partition your disk when you install Windows. You didn't say if you had XP or Vista. I always create a 60GB for XP and 80GB for Vista. 10GB is much to small. You can get away with 40GB for XP but NO smaller than that. You never want the free space on the OS drive to be less than 50%. After that it will impact performance.A fast drive is an empty drive. With Vista you can increase the size with Disk Management. With XP you will have to reinstall or get a partition software program.

I think you mean that you need more hard drive space. The C drive on windows is just the name of the partition that windows is on.
you could buy an external hard drive and hook it up to your computer via usb port. the computer will recognize it as a mounted disk and you can save files onto it just as you would your regular hard drive, a thumb drive, or burn data to a cd-r

If your primary HDD, C:\ was set to LVM then you can add a second HDD. Drive C:\ will expand to the second HDD.
