I have the same situation. I would like to try Storage Foundation from Veritas. You can get a 60 day trial. Can you please tell me if you have manage to resize yor partition, and how you did it. You can not use diskpart from microsoft on a systemdrive.

You can also do it the hard way:

1. Install the server disk as a slave disk in some Win2000/XP PC.
2. Use xcopy.exe with the appropriate switches to copy the
server partition to the primary active partition of a spare disk.
Make sure to copy all hidden and system files.
3. Install the spare disk in your server, then reboot it with your
Win2000 server CD to get into the Recovery Console.
4. Run the commands fixboot and fixmbr to restore your
boot environment.
5. Boot the server with this spare disk. If it works flawlessly
then you know that you have successfully cloned your
server disk.
6. Repartition the original server disk on the Win2000/XP PC,
then use the same process as above to restore the system.

It is easy to solve this problem now, you should abandon the idea that delete the partition and recreate a large partition or transfer to another large disk to solve low disk space problem, nowdays, you can resize the partitions directly, very easy. new technology make our life easier. see http://www.partition-tool.com/partition-magic/change-partition-size-server-2003.htm hope it can help others.
