Using Boot Camp Assistant only forces me to print out a 13 page document that is no help to me because it talks about Windows 7. I have Lion 10.7.2 with Microsofft Windows XP installed using VM Fusion. Everything works fine, I just want to reduce my partition size for Boot Camp (which I do not use at all) so that I can free up some space. There's no easy answer so far. I can't get to "Option to add a Windows partitiion" from Boot Camp Assistant.

I really wonder if schools no longer teach, you know things like how to look up things, dictionary, RTM, and of course print out along with a backup so that worse case scenerio, you nuke your drive and format and start over installing Lion and restore files.
http://www.apple.com/support/bootcamp and /lion have HOW TO, FAQ, help articles, how to use Lion Recovery mode (net install and net AHT for new systems).
There is even Help on the menu bar full of tips and answers.

I guess your wonderment, Hatter, went the same way as people who can really listen to your problems and, if they are experts, answer in a charitable way to someone who is not as expert as they.
I don't want to remove anything, I just want to reduce the size of the partition I've got and I guess I can't get a civil answer or one that is helpful.
If nothing else, please show me the site where I might find my answer and perhaps this old mind of mine can deduce the proper procedure.

Here is where you will find the answer.
This topic has been asked and answered so often that some contributors can be irritated when no effort to use the search function is made.
It's like the French proverb;
“Fortune helps him that's willing to help himself.”
Be angry if you wish but realize we are all volunteers on these forums and being impatient does not encourage
