Are there any free utilities(like Partition Magic) to resize the boot/system partitions on Windows XP?

Try the GParted Live CD. It is OS independent, you just boot it up and resize away. Don't forget to backup first :)

+1 Excellent tool. – Mercer Traieste Jul 15 '09 at 8:36
Is this safe to use with data or an OS installed on one of the partitions? – anonymous coward Jul 16 '09 at 16:45
@anonymous coward - in my experience, yes. Though it's a good idea to back up anyway. – tjrobinson Jul 16 '09 at 19:49

Easeus has a free home edition
