Here's what I've done when there was a need for resizing an ntfs
partionion, while installing skolelinux: 

boot with the skolelinux CD, but stopped before autopartkit is run. 
insert a cd with a static version of ntfsresize from
http://mlf.linux.rulez.org/mlf/ezaz/ntfsresize.html#static, and ran
ntfsresize, tvice, first to make room for the new partitions, then
after using cfdisk to resize, I've run ntfsresize a second time to use
the whole partition. I've done this 5 or 6 times, and only failed once,
when I made the partition to small (smaler than the resized size

adding ntfsresize in the installer image, would be helpfull

even if it has to be run from the command line.
