Paritioning Help??



Here's what I'm trying to do:

I have 2 hard drives, one windows, one FC4.  currently I boot into linux and have grub pass on the loading to hda2 (winxp) if so desired.  I would like to create 2 new partitions on hdb2 (LVM Volume00), one for a linux to windows transfer space (approx 7GB) and a installation partition so that I can mount FC5 iso's and boot to that partition to install.   Is it possible to shrink my hdb2 partition to accomodate these 2 new ones?  here is the output of fdisk -l

[root ip213 etc]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 164.6 GB, 164696555520 bytes
240 heads, 63 sectors/track, 21274 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 = 7741440 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1               1         596     4505728+  12  Compaq diagnostics
/dev/hda2   *         597       21273   156318120    7  HPFS/NTFS

Disk /dev/hdb: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hdb1   *           1          13      104391   83  Linux
/dev/hdb2              14       19457   156183930   8e  Linux LVM

Is this possible? (i'm relatively new to linux)

Thanks.
