breaking a win2000 Server partition to add Linux

I have a PC at home, running Win2000 Server. The HDD is 1 partition.. is there a way that i can break the partition into 4 partitions and install various Linux versions ie Fedora, Mandrake, Suse. I would like it to offer which i want to load into when i boot.. I am looking for something that can do this and hopefully the software is free.

One you have the partition shrunk installing is rather easy, just install to free space. Not sure what tool is best, I know the commercial Partition Magic could do it.

The Fedora installer should detect a Windows partition. Look for dual boot howtos for more details.

Thumbs up Check the Partition Magic site

I just checked the partition magic site, and it doesnt do Win2000 Server.. does 95,98, ME, NT4 workstation, 2000 Professional and XP.. But i did find they have a product called Volume Manager, will try that! Thanks!
