Download GParted from http://gparted.sourceforge.net/ then burn it to a CD, then boot using that CD.
You will then be able to resize your partition without losing data, and then you'll be able to create a new partition with the "liberated" space.
Keep in mind that, while GParted works, it is always recommended to back up your stuff before messing with partitions. There is no 100% safety guarantee.

As for your lost Windows DVD: http://www.mydigitallife.info/download-windows-7-iso-official-32-bit-and-64-bit-direct-download-links/ (yes this is legal)

If you happen to have Vista Ultimate, you can also download the files -- see http://www.askvg.com/direct-download-links-download-official-original-and-untouched-windows-vista-rtm-with-sp1-setup-files-32-bit-and-64-bit/
Won't work if you have Home Premium or Business.
