download GParted LiveCD from the website Brian mentioned or use any liveCD(Ubuntu for instance), most of them have GParted(System>Administration), use it to resize one of your Linux partitions, so that you can install Windows in space that you free up.

Windows isn't kind when installing. I would try installing it (Windows) first. I'd do my Linux installation over the free space left on the disk after Windows. Linux will recognize your other operating system, weather you're using grub or lilo (I use grub).

Good Luck.
