I would be totally satisfied with second step you've mentioned above :-)
But resize operation in gparted can resize only to the right, not to the 
left :(

As far as i understand resize-to-left requires _moving_ all the data to 
the left too.

By the way, just after i installed gparted it was unable even resize 
ntfs partitions. This changed then i installed ntfsprogs package.
