You don't need any special software. The OpenSolaris installer itself should allow you to partition the drive before installing, but be careful - one wrong move and you might wipe out your existing Windows partition.

Specifically, within the installer, you should look for a "Manual partitioning" option and create a new partition in the free space of your hard disk.

neither of these are "hardware" issues.

If youa re installing a second OS, make sure you backup any important data on your current OS.
