CFDISK

I'm installing Debian(linux). I'm having problems with the installation. The problem is that when I run the cfdisk I find that I only have 1.7 mb of free space. When MSDOS is something like 1036. I'm wandering if there is anyway of making space available without deleting all the data from the system?
                       Thankyou
P.S. Can I get a straight answer not links!!

Thing is: Linux needs unpatitioned space to be able to create it´s partitions, you must redice the size of your partitions, and this requires special tools such as Partition Magic or FIPS to be able to split and resize the partitions.
