installing centos dual boot with ubuntu

I have installed ubuntu desktop on my hard drive and I gave it all the hard drive.
Now I want to repatriate the hard disk and give half of it to anther ext4.
How do I do that?

Can I do it fron with in the ubuntu?

Second when I install the centos, how can I make to recognize the ubuntu and to create dual boot between the two?

I used Gparted.
And sudo update-grub from the ubuntu made it to recognize the centos.
