[QUOTE=poweredbydodge]I didn't think that you could resize a Windows partition that had the operating system (Windows) installed on it? I've seen Fat 32 partitions of just data resized, same for NTFS, but I didn't know you could do it with the OS partition. (I mean, sure, you could physically do it, but I thought it killed the operating system.)
I've done it many times without problems, much to my surprise!
The key thing is to scandisk and defrag, and cross your fingers.
The only problems I've had tend to be Partition Magic related. I have found using it to format to ext3 often causes the linux installer not to recognise the partition. So I only use it to re-size the windows partitions and create empty space for Linux. When i last installed Ubuntu 6.06 i tried Gparted off the live CD and that worked ok.
