I have a PC with Linux Red Hat and Windows XP installed.

I want to shrink the size of the Red Hat drive and give more space to Windows XP.

When I run Parition Magic 8.0 I get an error message that says "117 Partition's drive letter cannot be identified"

I looked in the manual and it told me to use the Partition Magic diskettes.

When I use the diskettes and I get an error 114.

I suspect the problem is occuring because I installed Linux incorrectly which messed up the dual boot between Windows XP and Red Hat. (Both OSes does work however)

Is there a way around this issue?

If not, is there another parition editor which I can use?

There are also plenty of Linux tools that can change the size of NTFS partitions. Google it to find which one is most trust-worthy.

However, I personally do not recommend resizing Windows' System & Boot Partitions. Windows relies on certain file positions through sectors rather than file&directory structure. Some programs are known to affect this.
