Just use the X install GUI to setup the partitions. Use for a hard drive of 40GB total use 29GB ext3 for the / partition, 1GB for a swap partition and leave 10GB as "free". Then when you install the second OS just use the "free" space on the hard drive. If you want some pictures or something just ask.
