There are two products..
 1. "Partition It"         www.quarterdeck.com
 2. "Partition Magic"      www.partition.com

Both will take your BIG harddrive (C:) and change it into two smaller
partitions (C: and D:) in doing so it allows the Cluster size to become
smaller and hence the wasted space.
But don't make the partition containing Windows too small, because it
seems to feel the need to grow like a cancer.
Good Luck,,,

((  BTW, whoever you are, why isn't your addr on the  inside like it
says?  ))
