As mentioned before, it's not polite (and not helpful) to write
the question in the subject line and leave the message empty.

For resizing NTFS partitions, I suggest taking a look at GPartEd.
There is a live CD / USB image that you can boot from, and use
that to resize the partition. FreeBSD's tools, such as gpart and
traditional fdisk, are not really the right tools for this task,
even though it _might_ be possible to still use them. Resizing
non-BSD partitions with a BSD system is not entirely impossible,
but you should use a better tool if it is available.

Keep in mind that resizing partitions and filesystems (!), no
matter if extending or shrinking them, is not a trivial task,
so always have a backup. ;-)

Sidenote: The UBCD has also GPartEd, if I remember correctly.
