ntfs drivers in linux can read from NTFS partitions. however I don't know
about any program that can "convert" the filesystem while preserving the
data (maybe programs like partitionmagic able to do that). I think, even
such program would advise you backing up the data first.

So, you can simply copy/backup the data out, format the FS as ext3/reisersfs
and restore them back. However, access rights/restrictions will probably not
be preserved. Also, check if the backup is OK, to avoid loosing data.
