On your CD (what ditribution do you have) is probably a directory called /dosutils, here is a program called fips, which can re-partition your partition without losing the data that exists. It uses the free space to create new partitions. Remember to create at least 2 partitions for Linux; 1 Swap partition (ca. twice your RAM, not need to be higher than 64 M), and 1 as your root system (data).

Good luck
