Use the commercially-available "Partition Magic" software
(http://WWW.PowerQuest.COM) to "resize" a partition,
which creates "free" space on the disk.
Then, allocate a partition, from within that "free" space.

But if you don't want to spend money use free linux tools that works great and save mbr in case you want to use only win98

V4 of Partition Magic is now available, via E-commerce,
but it is a _LARGE_ download -- it takes _HOURS_ to download.
It will shipped, in early October, 1998.

Under dosutils you find fips it will resize any type of partition and let you save mbr

I've heard that FIPS cannot resize an HPFS-formatted partition.
Is this still true?

There is a time limited demo of partition magic on their FTP site its in the /pub/demo directory under the filename of PMSETUP.ZIP. I think that its a 30 day demo but I have been using mine for 3 months :)
