I installed Windows 2000 on a dual boot. W2K is on the second partion (D: ) and Windows 98 is on the first (C: ). I am now at a point to where I no longer use Windows 98 and I would like to remove the partition. I have Partion Magic to remove the partition but I am wondering what that will to do to my Windows 2000 as it changes from D: to C:. Will it automaticlly adjust? Is there a utility to change it for me?

If necessary I will leave the original partition and just make it much smaller but that is not my first choice. If I do this, how small of a partition can it be?

Since you installed 2000 on the D: partition, it is going to freak if you change the partition. The Master Boot Record will show that the OS is installed to the D: partition, while the OS will be residing on the C:

I would just leave it and shrink the D: part. Leaving a few hundred megs over what it already is using. This should allow for the paging file to expand and leave room for your profile to expand.
