converting a floppy disk layout to partition layout



Hi all!

I have a slight problem: I have an external disk which contains one big
filesystem (like a floppy) type ext3 (If you ask why: blame udev or
maxtor, or me because I am stupid) which is approx 60% filled.

Now I want to have a partition table, ie a layout where the current
filesystem is the first partition, and the rest is as usual.

Is this possible withotu destroying the data?

Best wishes and thanks for any suggestions!

Norbert
