I just installed xp pro and in the installation where it asks you if you want to delete or create partitions well i deleted my main c: drive and made a 10gb partition but now in windows i can only acsses 10gb of a 40gb drive it is an NTFS partition. Any ideas on how to get the other 30gb back without having to reinstall?

From your post, I would guess that you didn't partition the other 30 gigabytes. This can still be done through FDISK or even on teh Windows setup disk. Once you've made the other partition, it will show up in Windows, but you'll need to format it by right clicking the drive and selecting format. Choose Fat32 or NTFS and let it do its thing. When it's done, you'll have a 10 gigabyte partition (C) and a 30 gigabyte partition (D).

can't you go start -> settings -> control panel -> performance and maintenance -> adminstrative tools -> computer management

then click on disk management and it should show your un-partitioned space and allow you to partition and format it.
