Resizing a NTFS Patition

By ben ·
I have WIN XP on a 30G hardrive formatted in the NTFS file system. I have about 20G free and would like to install RH Linux in part of the free space I have. I need to resize my NTFS partition to make room for a Linux ext3 partition. I have downloaded a few partition manipulation programs that only work with FAT 16 & 32. I have looked at Partition Magic, but don't know if it will resize an NTFS partition.

Is it possible to resize an NTFS partition? I have consulted a couple computer books I have an cannot find a clear answer. If it is possible, any recommendation on software would be appreciated.

Thanks!
Ben Snyder

Partion Magic is the way to go.

"Supports FAT, FAT32, NTFS, and Linux ext2/Swap file systems"

Thanks you both for your advice. I also asked another friend of mine about this issue and he concurred. I just couldn't find anything in the Partition Magic Specs that clearly indicated you could resize an NTFS partition. Maybe I misread. I figured I had better check to make sure.
