Description of problem:

On numerous occasion i have found myself in need to resize a NTFS partition on a
new box to setup a dual boot. But since RHEL doesnt provide such a utility, my
dept has to use a knoppix disc (which contains
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ntfsresize ) to resize the OEM installed NTFS
partition, and hence install RHEL.

Request: Can RedHat add a non-destructive NTFS resize utility to the INSTALL
disc of RHEL and/or Fedora.

Thank you.
