no space in extended

I am new to parted so here goes.

I currently have three primary and one extended
partition. I need to steal 39 megs from partition
three. Currently my file system layout looks like:

(parted) print
Disk geometry for /dev/ida/c1d0: 0.000-8673.984
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem 
1          0.016     99.609  primary   ext3       
2         99.609   3665.625  primary   ext3
3       3665.625   5665.781  primary   ext3
4       5665.781   8673.984  extended              lba
6       5665.812   7665.937  logical   ext3
5       7665.953   8666.015  logical   linux-swap

I need to create this new 39 meg partition as a
primary partition. So If I resize parition 3 to be 39
Megs smaller how can I create another primary
partition as I am at the limit for primaries correct?
So it seems to me I need to do a move operation or a
copy I am not sure which. It seems as though I can't
possible move partition 3 into the extended partition
as the extended already contains swap and my
/usr/local file system which accounts for all the
space in the extended partition. If anybody could give
me some insight into the sequence of steps in this
operation. I would greatly appreciate it.
