    The Knoppix Live-CD or SystemRescueCD can do it easily, too.

    Have you ever resized a Linux partition with this application?
    I doubt it or you wouldn't mention the idea.

    In short, do not follow this advice as it stands.

    For starters, it's not even possible since you would have to unmount SuSE in order for YaST's partitioner to work on itself. This is not something you can do and therefore it will not work. You could resize the Windows partition, but that was only part of your question.

    If you are mad enough to try it, I would at least suggest that you have a plan of how you are going to boot into Windows when it fails.

    Do the partitioning from either a LiveCD or in Windows w/ Acronis or PM.
    And back up anything on that disk that you need!!
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
