Use external tool from LiveCD to resize partitions or redistribute free space
If want to use Windows tool then use PartitionMagic

The PCLinuxOS LiveCd has a good partitioning tool in (in the PCLinuxOS control centre->Mount Points). It can safely resize both Windows (NTFS, FAT32) and Linux (ext3, Reiserfs) partitions.

Correct assumption!
Download image, burn it to CD, bootup box with burnt CD in it with "boot from cdrom" settings in BIOS.
