FC4 or 3 on T42p

I just got a new laptop, my old one was going down fast. Anyway I want to run dual boot on it just like I did with old one. With old one I just wiped out the HD clean and installed my version of win2k and Fc3. My new laptop came with XP. I really don't want to wipe the drive clean to install FC. Is there anyway I can resize the partition? I heard there is an utility on FC3 rescue disk that does it? What is the success rate with that? Also I used ndiswrapper to get my linksys wireless card to work with old laptop. My new one has build in wireless. Do I still need to resort to ndiswrapper, or is there a better way?

Programs like Partition Magic, DiskDrake, QtParted, GParted, etc., or just plain command-line "ntfsresize" can all resize NTFS partitions.

I think ntfresize is on FC3 rescue disk. Is there a newer version on FC4 rescue disk or is it the same as on FC3?
