i finally got a hand on a new laptop! its pretty cool but i'm wanting to re-partition the harddrive!

spec brief:

HP DV6000 (http://www.dse.co.nz/cgi-bin/dse.sto...ct/View/XC3980)
Windows Vista Home Premium
120GB HD

this laptop unfortunately doesn't come with the OS CD!

the hard-disk has two partitions, 106GB for the OS and 7GB Recovery...

i have no intention on touching the Recovery partition yet! I'm not too sure if deleting it would void my warranty...

can anyone give me directions on how to do this?

We cannot read your mind nor we know how much you know about the format / partitioning but if you provide what help you need in partitioning it will be of help to us.

As a general instruction the bootable OS CD has the option of formating and partitioning the hard drives.
