it may or may not work; i thought of this too when i first tried Ubuntu,
but found that, after the first resize i couldn't do it anymore  :sad: 

here's what i did:

1. resize NTFS partition using Partition Magic
2. installed Ubuntu on new free space(using reiserfs)

...after this, Partition Magic refused to let me edit the partition(s)
on the HDD. mainly, i think it's because reiserfs isn't supported by
Partition Magic(not even the latest version), but if Partition Magic
supports ext3, it may just work. 

i don't know if it supports ext3, though, since i was interested in

good luck
