can you post the output of

use the command fdisk to edit your partition.
sudo fdisk /dev/sda

If you have Ubuntu installation, you can install Gparted from Synaptic and use it.

There is no graphical partition editor comes pre-installed with jaunty livecd.

Either you can partition with command: parted (see man parted for details, need to be root for usage)

Or you can get a graphical partitioner from here:
