gparted is easy!  Fire it up and browse to the NTFS partition you want 
to resize, and select it.  Click on the 'partition' menu and there is an 
option to 'resize/move'.  The rest is easy, and I can honestly say it 
hasn't let me down once ....  but then I've never had a power failure or 
a computer hardware problem during the re-sizing - which takes quite a 
while!  Occasionally, my wife manages to trip one or more mcb's when she 
is getting stuff out of the pantry ....  there's no way around that.

Regards,        Barry.
