With the gparted live cd I resized my ntfs and ext3 (/home) partition 
yesterday.. No problems whatsoever... just if you need to move files 
around and all it's gonna take looooong.. so don't try to squeeze that 
in just before you need your computer :P took all evening here, but then 
again, I probably moved 300GB of data in total.
