Partition setup w/Vista64b

I'm trying to setup a dual boot Vista/Ubuntu laptop. All goes well with
the partition tool, except it craps out when I tell to re-partition the
disk. The tool sees the partitions on the disk, and the default
repartition (shrink) of the Vista partion is what I want; about 12% of
the 340G disk - and Ubuntu on the 300G partition.
I tell it to shrink the Vista (NTFS) partition, it starts and then
stops, asks me to partition the entire 340G disk for a single partition
Ubuntu. It doesn't even see the NTFS partition anymore. I then reboot
into Vista, and run chkdsk - now I can attempt to re-install the Ubuntu,
shrink the NTFS; and repeat?
