    I partitioned my HD with Partition Magic. How am I supposed to move files into the new partitions? Do I just move them? Or is there some kind of disk copy program I need? If I just move whatever files, won't it screw up certain programs and files?

    Depends on what you plan on doing with your new partition. If it is for a new OS install, replacement drive or dual boot, you should install the OS first. Then install all of your applications, drivers, updates, etc. If it is for backup, Ghost an image of your current partition to it. If it's for just data, well then copy your data to it.
