Does the LVM have enough space to keep the data from the NTFS partition (/dev/hda5)? Better: What about /dev/hda1? Could you save the files in /dev/hda5 there? Then you could delete that partition and create a Linux one, put the Linux system there and remove the LVM.

Next step would be to move the boot partition to the end of the disk and expand the extended partition so you can create your FAT partition there...

Of course all of it is very dangerous, so I would strongly recommend you to make a backup (in other place, like CDs) of your most sensible information, if not everything.

well, your suggestion seems to be the only one possible but is to risky for me now. Thanks anyway for the help. Maybe I'll try it sometime else when I'm not pressed by time
