Changing Partition size

I have 3x68 gig drives in raid5  partitioned into 1x12gig and 1x124gig . What would be the easiest safest method of taking free space from the 124gig and allocating to the 12gig.  The 12gig is boot partition with windows 2003se.  I have used SERVER MAGIC from Power Quest years ago. But would like suggestions on software solution or method that would achieve my goal.  I am imaging the server with Symantec Livestate Recovery 3.0 standard server version.

Use either Partition Magic or Acronis Disc Director. Software solution can easily fix this issue but you will have to delete any partitions on the 124gb part so you can allocate to the 12gb part.

If the partitions a re all basic then you can probably use Gpared on the Systen rescue CD to resize partitions.

In addition see
