qtparted will resize your NTFS partition. I specifically checked this in
one of the computer labs at Northeastern. I booted a Knoppix 3.3 CD, and
shrank the Windows XP NTFS partition. I generally have a few copies with
me. If you are near Northeastern/Boston on Tuesday nights or Burlington
on Wednesday nights I can give you a copy.
