I am afraid you did not finished your learning ;-)
I always use Linux do do the partitionning stuff, and even the formatting 
(fat32, not NTFS). It is much more powerful than windows.
Once the partitionning + formating is done, windows installs itself just fine.

The Mandrake installer does the job just fine (first do a defrag in windows). 
I did not try Qtparted yet.
