Exclamation Resizing Partitions

I have a dual boot with Windows XP Home and Fedora Core 4. I feel now that I gave too much space to Windows and want to find out how I can resize the partitions without totally reformatting and loosing all the data.

Thanks for your help

this thread should help. http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho...ghlight=resize
it's probably a good idea to run defrag on xp before resizing.

XP has a native tool for this you can run from it's (emulated) commandline called 'DiskPart' (if I remember the name correctly - check the system help) it's roughly similar to parted and allows you to resize ntfs partitions.

I've tried it and it worked for me. Do take the precaution of defragmenting beforehand though!
