Actually, andur's suggestion will probably work better for you. Just create a child window of the main window. You can resize and position the child wherever you'd like within the client area. Build the viewport and projection matrix using the child's client size and aspect ratio. In the render routine:

RECT cRect;
GetClientRect(hChildWindow,&cRect);

... do your rendering

device->Present( &cRect, &cRect, hChildWindow, 0 ); // assumes viewport set to child client size
