You can resize partitions in live CD if that's what you mean?

this boots and runs directly over windows from my external hard drive. i do not have a live cd.

Make it FAT file by formatting it

Are you using Wubi, i.e. you installed Ubuntu inside Windows disk partition ?

Thanks Rohith Kumar, that solved my question.
