What ever way you do it, BACKUP, BACKUP, BACKUP.

Have a look at this site.

Eastender's link is for starting with a blank drive - to partition an HDD with an existing Windows installation without losing data you'll need a software application like Partition Magic.

Sorry Eastender,missed out the word "mainly for starting....." - just wanted to emphasise not to try and do it through Windows if the drive isn't blank.

I agree with leo49, in fact I use Partition Magic myself but the article in the link gives a good overall picture of the subject.
