Short Answer: Yes, I believe so.

Long Answer: Yesterday, I installed 32-bit feisty from the CD and I
believe what the installer wants you to do is resize the OLD partition
to make room for the NEW partition.   Thus, sliding the slider to 45%
would decrease your OLD partition to 45% of the drive and leave 55% of
the drive for the new install.  I can tell you this with 99.99736%
certainty, but, as with anything as important as resizing a partition,
make sure that if something goes wrong you have a backup of your
important data.
