    Like a fool, I've created a single partition for XP and need to ghost an partition image to another partition. Anyone know of a utility that can spilt up a 60GB HD to say, 50GB and a 10GB partitions?

    I know you can write the image directly to a CDR using Norton Ghost, but every time I've tried this, it crashes during the dump to CD (at random positions).

    Yes, Partition Magic (version 7 for the best results). With Partition Magic you can even create/resize partitions while not losing data. see Powerquest.com for more info.

    Is your CD-recorder fully compatible with Norton Ghost? (see the CD-R/CD-RW compatibility list for more info). If your CD-Recorder is not listed, then you have a change (as in your case) it will not work.
