Mandriva Partitoning


I ran from the live CD and am about to take the next leap.
I have XP on a 30G MasterHD and a new 80G SlaveHD.
Can I leave the XP disk alone and Partition and format the 80G Slave and install Mandriva there for a dual boot system?
I have the Mandriva documentation and it warns us novices to stay away from manual partitioning, but I think that is what I must do.
The Mandriva partition tool is DiskDrake.
I don't want to lose XP just yet.
