Right, you must have resizentfs (or ntfsresize?). Have done it many
times. Load the resize binary on a usb stick, boot a fedora rescue CD (
or a live linux distro?), mount the stick and then:
1. run resize. Be Careful, Pay attention. Run it in 'pretend' mode
once before the real thing. Record the new filesystem size. You have
now resized the filesystem, not the containing partition, so
2. Run your partition manager. fdisk, parted, etc. Kill the NTFS
partition. Immediately create a new partition starting at exactly the
same place, and ending at a spot that must absolutely be large enough to
contain the new (smaller) ntfs filesystem.
3. Reboot into Windows (safemode) and run the windows file system
4. Reboot again w/ your Linux install media and do the linux thing.
