You could try the Debian Installer [1]. This also has support for NTFS 
partition resizing. Make sure that the NTFS partition is "clean" before 
you boot the CD (i.e. run scandisk within Windows).

I would suggest you use the RC3 netinst CD image.

The manual that is linked from the same page has some info on the subject.
