Seems like the ntfsresize will only check for errors but wont repair anything. I wonder if i have to check at all? I have just formatted, is there any chance of error?(guess yes )
In which regards fs's, there's always the chance for an error, it can be produces by a number of factors from software to hardware. That's why backups exist

11.0 For openSUSE 11.0, ntfs-3g is installed by default and write support is enabled for root only..
By default, only root user can write on NTFS partition. Modify /etc/fstab to reflect dmask=002 to enable user writing."

So now i only need to know how to mount, as it seems anyway I will have to boot from windows bootdvd.
All you need to be able to mount it is a line on your fstab, the basic thing would look like this:

/dev/sda1 /mnt/windows ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
You can add umask and whatever options you want, of course, also make sure that the partition is the correct one.

/dev/sda1 /mnt/windows ntfs-3g defaults,umask=000 0 0
Resizing this way is the same as error repair? =/
What is actually being repaired? bad blocks? Can i use bad blocks command instead?
Don't have the knowledge to answer that.
