Repartitioning harddisk

Hi folks.
I'm going to do some partitioning on a Debian(-Woody)-based system
(Skolelinux, norwegian). A 10GB harddrive has the following partitions

cm-84:/home/erlend# fdisk -l /dev/hda

Disk /dev/hda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 1232 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1   *         1       117    939771   83  Linux
/dev/hda2           118      1232   8956237+   f  Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda5           118      1141   8225248+  8e  Linux LVM
/dev/hda6          1142      1232    730926   83  Linux

I'm going to clean this disk totally of data (of course with
backup)and repartition it. How can I make two (or more) partitions,
with no spare storage in extended partitions or logical volumes? And
with wich tool/program?  I've checked out fdisk's man-pages, but I
didn't understand how to use it to do these operations.

Cheers, Vegard
