Try gnuparted:

or any version of Partition Magic later than 4.0 (not open source, have to
buy, borrow, or know..)

do you not have ANY unallocated space on you physical drive?  If you have
just a Gig, it should be enough, just fdisk it and mount on /mt/lfs

Otherwise, you need a tool like that above.

Good luck!
