Dual to Multi Boot(win2k,RH9 and Slackware)

I have a Dual boot comp with win2k and RH9.0
Now I want to install Slackware on it.

Its a 40 GB disk
win2k is 30GB(can't disturb this,use it for office)
RH9.0 is 10GB

I want to split this into 5GB of the RH9.0 and 5GB of Slackware
is this possible?

Also I heard that Slackware uses lilo while mine is grub.What will happen.

thanks in advance,

You're going to need to get software to shrink your Red Hat partition, e.g. GParted. Before resizing, back up any data, just in case something goes wrong.

Also, you can skip the LILO installation step when you install Slack and just add an entry to your GRUB config file to boot Slack.
