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

Hi,
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.

Thanks.

There are graphical tools as SysExpert pointed out that you can run from a CD if you reboot, but busybox has fdisk, you can just run that, partition the drive, make your filesystem, and mount it, all with out a reboot.
