[tlug] Help with fdisk please

I am running out of space on one of my machines,  I *think* I have more
room on this hard drive, but I havent used fdisk much and I don't want to
lose any data.  Can someone
please tell me if I have any room left that I can make another partition
with.  Do I have some space from Block 633(4?) to 789?  If indeed I have some 
room left, how do I go about makingthis partition.

Thanks for the help
