Norton ghost not working

    Hello:

    I'm trying to use Norton Ghost 2003 to backup my winxp partition, but when
    finally I click on the "Proceed to dump partition" I get:

    "Unable to find a free MBR slot in the Virtual Partition DLL. This is
    usually due to there being no free primary partition slotsleft on the boot
    disk."

    what's the problem and can it be fixed??

    (The laptop comes originally with a single partition c: containing vista, at
    that time I created two new partitions d: and e:, then I installed win xp
    sp3 on d: and I'm using it, c: still containing vista but it's not bootable,
    the system boots on d:, does this matter?)


    Thank you

    WIN XP SP3
