You're right! so that's not the problem.

However the issue still stands, I'm not able to change the size of the
one partition containing Win XP.

Well, here is another clue: qtparted reports, that support for ntfs
filesystem is not implemented yet.

Trying to do a resize, it ends with the error-message: Filesystem check
failed! Totally 1 cluster accounting mismatches.

I just ran a filesystem check from Win XP, it ended succesfully, that
is, reporting no errors.

I didn't mean to say, that it is the same thing. In terms of effect =>
not being able to change the Win XP partition-size, but perhaps it is
two different problems.

I just tried another time with sarge-installer, and at least I'm not
able to find out how to change the size of the partition with the

Some one on this list gave me theimpression, that this was possible.

The partition list lists two partitions, a small "unused" partition of 7
MB and a large partition which occupies the rest of the disk, formatted
with ntfs. Containing Win XP.

Can anyone guide me throug this proces?
