I tend to disagree with that advice...
I would recommend http://gparted.org/livecd.php over the microsoft-supplied
tools, in a heartbeat.

Boot off that Live image on a CD or thumbdrive (or use the version of
GPartEd included with the System Rescue Live CD from
http://www.sysresccd.org/ ), select the correct disk from the drop down
menu in the upper-right, set the borders of the partitions where you want
them with the GUI, then tell it to Apply the pending actions.

If I recall correctly, the disk management tool in the windows MMC won't
resize the partition it's running from, by the way.
