Changing some of my Linux partition back to NTFS


I am running Fedora on a emachine laptop which is set up as dual boot between XP and fedora.

I have the need to install some programs on that XP slice but it is not big enough.

Since I am new to Linux, I don't know how to resize my linux partition to make more space available for the XP partition.

I originally set up the partitions with Partition Magic. When I boot into XP and try to resize my partition with that it totally ignores the Linux formatted side of the disk.

Please Note : I have only partitioned one drive in my life -- This one. I have only installed a couple of programs on my Linux machine. I run XP at work and at home for the majority of the things I need to do.

That = don't kill me please.
