What you want to acomplish is to create an unformated/unknown/free
partition on your disk.
You can wipe your drive and re-install leaving the free space. :(
You can try using your current operating system's tools.
You can buy a commercial product like Partition Magic. You defrag
your system first, then use PM to shrink a partition to create the free space.
For the cost of PM you could buy another drive.
You can find a partitioning tool for download.
