How do I partition my disk leaving "untouched" the win?

Without formating C:, I dont have a clue how to make a partition on my HardDrive, and my intention is to leave the win partition "just in case" when Im changing the OS. Is there any website that could explain me this in PLAIN ENGLISH (better spanish), becouse I dont want to bother at all, and I need a quick answer. But if any could help me IN CLEAR LANGUAGE, I'll be thankful

Partition Magic

You can find a lot of sites on repartitioning, but I would higly recommend Partition Magic, especially if you will be doing several systems.

We have done many systems at work that had an existing Windows partition, and have never had any problems after using Partition Magic.
Just make a bootdisk, boot it, and use the graphical interface to set the size of you partition.
