    I have 4 partitions in my 80 gb hdd each 18.6 gb

    c-- win 98
    d-- win xp
    e-- files
    f-- linux

    can i resize the partitions and create more partitions out of these using partition logic or other such tools? or do i have to uninstall the OSes before doing that?

    U cant resize them w/o loss of data unless you use some tool like Ranish etc... so I guess you will end up removing the OSes by resizing w/o tools...

    You can resize them at your own risk. No software can
    prevent data-loss. So if you have very important files,
    better take a backup in a DVD before resizing the
    partitions!!

    partition magic will solve your problem (to be safe, back data first)
