First of all, it is called "repartitioning" and it can be done in Windows.
Second of all...It will not speed up your pc,lol...The only way to "speed" it up by HDD's is to get another physical drive...
Think of it like this.
You have one pencil and a piece of paper. You're writing on it.
Now you rip the paper in two, but still have the one pencil. You are still writing at the same speed, but you have 2 sections to write on.
But with another HDD, it's like having two pieces of paper and 2 pencils. You can write much faster.
So if you are doing it for speed, don't. It will not help you.

Considering you have only C:\ drive right now and using Windows 2000 or higher. First you need to check whether the C:\ drive has occupied whole of the drive (Right Click properties to find it).
If only certain space is allocated for C:\ drive then you can create additional partitions using windows itself. Go to Control Panel > Administartive Tools > Computer Management. Once there in the "Storage" category on the left, select "Disk Management". Now you should be seeing only one drive, that is C:\. Now right click and create Extended partition and then logical drives.
If the whole of the hard drive space has been allocated to C:\ drive then you have to use a program like Partition Magic to create extra partitions.
bunch more stuff if your interested.
