File system conversion


Is there any tool avaliable for slackware/linux that enables one to convert file systems?
i.e, i have recently switched to linux after some dark years with windoze, now, all my partitions (except the linux-native of course) are NTFS, this sucks because they are write only =)
So, i need to convert my NTFS partitions to ReiserFS (or ext2/3 if Reiser can't be done).
Is this possible??

Not without losing data on partitions.
So backup everything on those partitions, say goodbye to them and format to ext2/3 or ReiserFS

If I were a 1337-h@x0r I would write a program, such as partition-magic, able to
convert file systems

It's possible within the "partition magic" program
