Download PCLinuxOS (, burn the CD and boot off it just like you did with the system rescue CD. It has the diskdrake partitioning tool built in (its in the menus in the PCLinuxOS Control Centre). I've found it easier to use and more full featured than QTparted.

BTW Mandriva is free (as in beer) and they also have 'Mandrake Move' (free too) as their LiveCD version. However I think PCLinuxOS is a better LiveCD (its based on Mandriva/Mandrake).

'Filesystem check failed! Totally 6 cluster accounting matches'
It looks like you are at a crossroads here. The most reliable and permanent way to fix the problem that you are having is:

(1) Back up your current xp partition and delete the partition. Then, recreate a smaller partition for xp and reinstall xp and your data. You then use the rest of the hard drive for your Fedora Core 4 partition. This option is desirable if you can do it but might not be practical for you.

(2) Install a 2nd hard drive and put Fedora Core 4 on it.
