You can use utilities like Partition Magic or System commander to resize partitions on the fly. Make sure you have a recent backup and have a look at www.powerquest.com and www.v-com.com

Both tools suggested are commercial applications. If you want a freeware application that does the job just as well as the other two, then FIPS is the right tool for you.

If will let you repartition your HD without loosing data on the existing partitions (unless you exclude the partition in the process).

It's easy to use, free, and even comes with source code.

You can download FIPS 2 from:
