I believe that the latest incarnation of PM can see linux partitions, but I 
wouldn't choose to use it.  I'd boot from a live CD and run gparted or 
qparted to handle the partitions.

OTOH, it depends on what you actually want from that box.  Would you prefer to 
keep Fedora for yourself and at the same time have Ubuntu so that you can 
work with them?  There are options there - another drive and edit grub to 
handle both, or a VM, which is a little trickier to set up, but saves you 
needing to reboot to look at Ubuntu.
