    How exactly is this a Linux question? NTFS isn't even fully doented
    outside Microsoft, so strictly speaking, no one can accurately answer your
    question who is not a Microsoft employee or technical rep. One thing is
    sure -- there is no publicly available written specification for NTFS.

    Yes there are free NTFS tools available online. You can google
    for them with "Non destructive NTFS resizing partition tool".

    And the answer to the question he asked, probably to setup a dual-boot
    machine, is "yes". There are some decent Linux tools called
    "ntfsresize", but the interface for that is pretty confusiing and can
    easily lead a newbie to shooting themselves in the filesystem using
    them. The commercial tool "Partition Magic" is pretty good for this sort
    of thing, and also handles resizing Linux-style ext2 partitions pretty
    well (although if you're using ext3, you'll need to re-enable the ext3
    journaling and the labels by hand).

    I'm searching for a tool to resize a NTFS partition in the
    non-destructive way to free up space for Linux.

    Thanks you John Thompson and Pual Lutus for your advice.

    Is there a linux boot image contain NTFSRESIZE???

    You can always build one, in particular if you can boot from a CD drive. But
    you must realize this is (in principle) better accomplished from Windows.
    After all, Windows owns the partition type and knows all its properties.

    Mission accomplished. I have Redhat AS 2.1 running. I used
    ntfsresize to shrink and preserve the NTFS partition. Now, I have XP
    and Linux dual boot on my system.

    thanks a lot.
