need to dual boot centos 5.1 with xp but centos is already installed.
 
well I need to use an app that has been designed not to work with vmware (I have no idea why but that's that they say (networksims.com). so I need to shrink my centos and install windows and then make sure that grub can reclaim the bootloader. how the heck do I do this, from shrink to reclaim of the bootloader? thanks in advance.

GParted or Parted Magic should work for the shrinking and this link explains xp/linux w/linux installed first.

Do you happen to have a spare old disk floating around you could use?
