Ok, this won't work that way :-)

Please download slacko from here http://slacko.eezy.xyz/download.php - best use the 32 bit iso http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/puppy-slacko-6.3.2/32/slacko-6.3.2-uefi.iso

either burn the iso or make "dd if=slacko-6.3.2-uefi.iso of=/dev/<the-usb-stick>"
Boot from the iso, open a terminal, start gparted. Now you can resize partitions. BTW, slacko is slackware based :-)

When you have problems booting from USB, then please post what hardware you are using. When you use Lenovo/IBM, you migh have to press F12 to select the boot media. Also not all usb sticks boot on all computers.
