How can I make my boot partition larger under Window 2000 Server?

How can I make my boot partition larger under Window 2000 Server? Volume Magic by PowerQuest will not work with dynamic disks. The SCSI drive has three partitions and is running Small Business Server 2000.

I thought Partition Magic 7.0 from PowerQuest would handle dynamic disks. I'd first drop them a message asking about their product, since that would be the best option. Your only other option is to install an additional hard drive then create a map-point from the existing drive to the new one. The space on the new drive will be used by any file stored in the map-point folder. If that is not a viable option for you, you could try a complete system backup, create a new larger partition, re-install W2KSBS, then restore your backup.
