    No, but you can use Disk Utility to make another partition.

    The easiest way is to use Boot Camp Assistant to make one partition, make it big enough for both Windows and Linux, then use Disk Utility to split that partition in two.

    I'm not on my Mac, so I can't walk you through it.

    Then just resize the OS X partition.

    See this video for more on Disk Utility:
