Creating a new partition

My current file system looks like this:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
2.0G 796M 1.1G 43% /
/dev/hda1 494M 19M 450M 4% /boot
tmpfs 58M 0 58M 0% /dev/shm
992M 34M 907M 4% /home
3.9G 1.8G 2.0G 48% /usr
3.9G 355M 3.4G 10% /var
3.9G 183M 3.5G 5% /var/log
29G 1.3G 26G 5% /var/www

I would like to create a new partition (/opt) with 10G from the /var/www partition. What is the best (and easiest) way to do this?
