    i dont know how you could change partitions without losing data.

    what are you using ubuntu for exactly? you coudl always jsut run it off of the liveCD and not install it at all.

    Download Ubuntu, and you can run it without installing. You can use Ubuntu's built in partitioner to partition your harddrive without losing data..
