How can I partition my HD in XP?

I have Windows XP. I only knew how to partition my HD in DOS mode. How can I do it in XP? (XP has no DOS mode)
To partition drives in XP, right-click on My Computer and select Manag. Then select the Disk Management tool. Here you'll get a complete breakdown of all the drives and partitions in your system. If you want to add or remove a partition, just right-click either on the partition itself or the empty space you want to create the partition in and select Create or Delete Partition.
