Have a look at http://www.wlug.org.nz/InstallFest for the details of
what we are suggesting people do. Basically it boils down to
* Have at least 5GB unpartitioned space on your disk
* OR be prepared to wipe the disk clean
* OR buy a new harddisk
as others have pointed out resizing is particularly risky and not
something that I think we want to be fiddling around with. Provided
there is enough space on the disk we will quite happily ensure that the
machine dual boots properly.

I think be installing a recent distribution such as Fedora Core and
teaching people how to use the package management tools that are
available we will achieve most of this.
