Put it this way: If I can stumble my way through shrinking MS Windows and getting FreeBSD to dual-boot on a laptop, you oughta be able to get Linux and FreeBSD on the same box. :-) System Rescue CD with the "run_qparted" is the starting point to shrink the Linux partition. BE PATIENT!!! When the qparted program is shrinking the disk, it *LOOKS* like it locked up. It did not. Step away from the computer. Step away from the computer. Go have lunch or something.
