Default Problem with Partition tweaking

Dear All,

I have satelite C640 Toshiba laptop with 500GB HD.
Iam using dual boot with Windows 7 and RHEL 6.
I have previously given 200GB to a backup partion with ntfs formating, I was running out of space to install Fedora 16 so I have taken backup of D: drive and deleted it using fdisk and recreating it with 110 GB partition with ntfs partition. Leaving around 90GB of free disk space. Now Iam unable to create new patition with fdisk or by installing the fedora 16.
Below are some commands output.

Kindly give a solution to the problem.
Thanks in Advance.*

The DOS partition table only allows 4 primary partitions, one of which
may be an extended partition. You already have 4 primary partitions
(sda1-sda4), so the unallocated space between sda3 and sda4 is unusable.
