Resize Partition

I am running FC6 on a 40G laptop.
I want to resize the partition to free up 5Gig (to make a primary partition) of free space so I can install another OS.
I have read a few posts which suggest this can be performed live.
Can somebody please provide the details on how to perform this?

[root@linux-laptop ~]# lvdisplay
