Resize Partition from dos command line


I am looking for a tool that can resize a NTFS partition from DOS.
I need to be able to script this so this can be done in an automated process.
I would also prefer this be a free tool if possible.

Not from DOS ... and not from a script ... but Boot-It NG does boot to its own environment; and does a perfect job of resizing a partition.   The free demo version will let you give it a try (www.bootitng.com).

you may want http://gparted.sourceforge.net/download.php
it works on linux
it is based on http://www.linux-ntfs.org/
so you may use this, maybe you can get it to work on cygwin, so it would work on DOS. but no garantee

You can use "diskpart" utility from command prompt
it is free in windows xp

Diskpart almost works, it has the ability to extend, but I need to shrink the partition.

wrong, at least it depend on the dos, you can load a ntfs module, dos 3.1 maybe doesnt support dll for file systems.
