i've seen many guides on how to create a dual boot of windows and linux when starting with windows, but i haven't found a guide to help with creating a windows partition to dual boot. i am currently running ubuntu and i have an xp iso, ripped from my cd on a desktop computer (don't have a cd drive). my hard drive is partitioned into the primary partition, extended, and linux swap. i've downloaded the gnome partition editor and it wont let me resize my partition. i tried "create partition table, but it says "2 partitions are currently active on device /dev/sda." so i can swap off one, but i can't alter the other at all. any help would be apriciated.
