Root 1st Eris root, need some help

Rooted the Eris, mainly so I can move apps 2 sd card. I am trying to use Link2SD, but says i need 2 partions on the SD card, How do I go about making a 2 partitions without losing any of the data on it?

You can't*. You need to save the data from the SD card, partition using Recovery, then copy the files back.

* - it may be possible to partition non-destructively while mounted to a Linux computer, but I can't recall the procedure, it may depend on the Linux build, and you can never fully trust a non-destructive partition anyway, so I would back up the card anyway.
