        I guess yes if you make it bigger, but I am not sure the OS will make any
        profit of this...

        If you mean to make it smaller, answer is certainly no: RPM knows nothing
        about NTFS as it should be clear from the screens, so is unable to operate
        on its structure. And a keypoint of NTFS is that the mirror copy of the
        inode list (MFT) lies precisely... at the end of the partition. So to be
        able to shrink it, you should before move this copy in another place...

        ... No problemo. Backup. Delete the partition. Create partition the size you want. Restore everything from backup. Takes about a week. There s the rub.

          No problemo.
          Backup.
          Delete the partition.
          Create partition the size you want.
          Restore everything from backup.
          Takes about a week.
          There's the rub.

          Alternatives
          1: XP has built in tool for resizing a partition larger if there is
          adjoining free space.
          2: Partition Magic will resize it up or down or hither or thither. Get the
          right version.
          3. You could try going part way through a SuSe Linux 9.1 or greater (IIRC)
          install and bail out after resizing the NTFS partition to make way for
          Linux. Reboot and use RPM to delete your newly created Linux partitions.
          Better still - go all the way with Linux then delete your NTFS partition.
