Knoppix includes qtparted but I don't do NTFS so I don't know if it
will resize that. IMHO qtparted is inscrutable like the traditional
parted, just in a friendlier GUI kind of way.

I was able to use Knoppix with qtparted to rearrange some linux
partitions so as they say... nothing succeeds like success.
