This will not be possible without using a third party software to resize and not lose any data.Even with a third party software is not guaranteed and it is suggested that you back up your data first.
Try looking at some of the download sites that may offer trial versions that allow you to use the resizing option
Symantec-Norton's Disk Doctor
System Commander
Take a look at www.windrivers.com-click on the Advanced line in the left column,then click the hard drives icon,it will show disk utilities that you may be able to use,yet you will need the read me files printed for reference to use the DOS Resizing utility.

It is possible only to grow (or expand) disks in Win2K and there are a few caveats.

The disk must be Dynamic.
The disk must have free unallocated space.

Right click on the partition you wish to expand and select "Extend Volume".

A way to extend a disk partition that has no unallocated space is to install another disk, copy all of the data from one partition to the new disk. Delete the old partition. Extend whatever partition you need to. Copy the data back to the new partition. Note that this is not recemmended for system disks or where applications are installed as drive letters WILL change.

Lilo, and just about any other type of partition .
