Bootit NG is an excellent disk management shareware program that can
resize an NTFS partition non-destructively, among other things. 

It's also a boot manager (and a very good one), but if you just want to
use it for partitioning, you can just download the zip file, make the
floppy install disk, boot from it, cancel Setup, and then go into the
Partition Work screen where the partitioning tools are available.
