changing partition

I have a partition of windows XP and linux mandrake 10.1. Windows was given 40MG and Linux 20. I am not using windows that much and I need more memory in LInux. Is there a way to change the way memory was partitioned.

I know from experience that you can safely resize your partitions with 'partition magic'. I've never tried using linux tools to resize, because I've read that it is not that reliable with NTFS filesystems (ie windows)
