You can get a software named "Partition Magic", using this method you'll be free of risk to missing your files.

If you don't want to by any software, you should be very careful partitioning your computer, I recommend not to do it, but if you want to learn how to do so, here's a good address: http://pcworld.about.com On the search window, write "partitioning hard drive".
