Creating Partition under linux, Busybox with 1 partition and loaded files

I have a situation here to resolve. We have busybox running on the system with 1-partition defined already with some disk space covered. I need a solution (fdisk or open source disk utility) to make an extended partition without losing the existing data.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
