I would like to install Ubuntu on my 640 GB external hard drive.But about 100 gb of its capacity was already used. I heard there is a program called Gparted so I can creat some partition for Ubuntu installation files on my external disk.But can I use this program on Live-USB Ubuntu.

do you know a link how to use the program for this kind of situations

Well, resizing partitions with Gparted is really easy. You just select any partition you like and then give it a new size! And according to this you will not loose any data. For more info got to this wiki. If you have a live usb of ubuntu then it has already Gparted with it.
