There was a thread on this forum a coupla-few of months back about utilities

includes NTFS resizing, apparently from ntfsresize utility 
(http://mlf.linux.rulez.org/mlf/ezaz/ntfsresize.html), part of the Linux-NTFS 
Project: http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/.  I believe this is the same 
resizer used in Xandros.

to play around with it recently, but was rather put off by the different hard 
drive naming conventions and the fact that it didn't see my partition table 
the way I envisaged it existing, so I aborted (but apparently not before the 
OS wrote its bootloader to my MBR!)  I don't think I'm quite ready for 
FreeBSD, but I'd like to give Redhat 8.0 a spin or maybe SuSE 8.0 if it is
