Basically you want to backup the relevant fs (perhaps tar.gz them), make your 
changes and put them back again.
However you have to mess here with Linux fs and with Win fs. Hoefully the MS 
fs can be tar.gz as the Linux one. If that is the case then I would continue 
Hard Disk Upgrade Mini-HOWTO.

Another note is to look for parted. But I do not know how stable it is.

Hope this helps.
