    It depends on what filesystem linux is using.If you have a recent ver. of PartitionMagic,that will work.Check DiskDrake and see if it has a non-destructive resizing option.There is also GNU/parted which may be on your system already.
    If you have more than 4-5GB for linux there is no standard rule of partitioning.It all depends on what you want to do.
    I'll post a better explanation when I get home from work:D
