Partition magic works very well in this kind of situation, allowing one to
manipulate the partitions as desired to place them within desired
boundaries, re-size, etc.  I guess now there are one or two open source
pkgs which function in a similar manner.  Not sure how well any of them
deal with NTFS formatted partitions, if at all, although I suspect that
the later versions of PM would be capable.  These later versions also
include a boot loader which may be your advantage.  I've been user of PM
since version 1 when it came out for OS/2, and always had good results.
Although I did hear of some problems with one of the early versions which
included the boot loader.
