You could do that also from Mandriva. There is a nice GUI utility in MCC, just have a look in
there. Of course, if you resize your partition, there is a risk of losing data from the partition
you will take space from. Back up is always necessary for all your critical data. One thing that
is not known about linux (I did the same as you did, i.e. create an ext 2 partition to install
linux) is that (with Mandrake at least) the installer takes care of all the trouble and let you
create the required partitions...
