Michael, you can use one of the free partition managers from here:
Free Partitioning Software (Partition Editors, Managers, and Recovery Tools)

I've used the first 2 listed, GParted LiveCD and Partition Logic successfully to resize partitions. Both of these are iso images you download and create a bootable CD from, then boot the CD to do the partitioning.

Amazing, every time it's reported: The in-place Upgrade which users like the most is from RC to RTM.

Can only be because they have been using the (beta buggy) RC so the RTM is such a quality improvement it is a shock.

Imagine how happy they'd be with a clean install!
