Resize your win partition first.
Try booting from usb-flash key (if you have any by the hand) with
the distro like Damn Small Linux ( then
mounting iso, chrooting into it, installing crux following the Handbook.

Of coarse it is strongly advised to follow such steps only if you are
familar with linux and partitioning.
