Help partioning hard drive

So I want to partition my hard drive which I will later install linux on. I'm using Vista home basic and know how to do it using disk management. I have about 120gb free on the C drive but when I go to 'shrink volume' it doesn't let me shrink it at all. Any ideas? Shall I use a different partitioning tool?

How stable is it, I have no easy way of backing up my current hard drive and don't want to lose windows! Thanks :)
Ok thanks, ill take the risk :P
Ok I see its a .iso, do I want to burn it to a disc/mount it?
Burn it to a disk, you boot from it, that's what makes it better as it runs outside of windows, so nothing in use.

I normally run it from a usb stick myself.

Ok thanks for the help, :)
And the most random question yet. Left my Disks on a window sill and they are slightly discoloured... should I be worried? X)
