Hi i have already partitioned my drive to c and was thinking of formatting my pc. was just wondering if i wanted to make another partition i.e. split my 80gb hdd into 40 each, how would i do this? should i use fdisk again or what? thanks all.

Yes you would use Fdisk again. Then format each partition.
