Is it at all possible to partition a partition of a single drive?  Also would I have to destroy the contents of the first partition?

You can use a disk utility such as FWB Hard Disk Toolkit to change the size of a partition.  You can also do this at a lower lever with a utility like pdisk (not recommended).

I am assuming here that you are trying to modify an existing partition in a multi-partition environment.  If this is the case, using a utility to modify a partition will not destroy the contents of another partition.
