You would need a third-party program in order to do that, something like PartitionMagic. Make sure your data has been backed up before using any program of this type as things can go wrong.

Are you sure you want only one 80G drive? It's usually better to have at least two for a couple of reasons:
Defragging and searching are faster
If one partition gets a virus, corrupted files or whatever, at least the files on the other partition are somewhat safe.

Agreed. I'd move 'My Documents' and your installed programs to the second partition.
