You say that you installed ubuntu to all. Stands to reason that then there are no remaining parts big enough to install another distro. Please clarify. – aquaherd Jun 21 '13 at 22:11

the most easy way is to use gparted on a live usb or DVD. to resize a partition you need to unmount and since you cannot unmount your root partition you cannot do it from your normal Ubuntu install. in the answer to this question is a quick overview how to use gparted.
