Windows 7 and XP dual boot - resizing partitions on windows 7

I've just installed Win7 on my laptop and it is dual-booting with my Windows XP.

It's reasonably safe but you are best taking a backup first. Also it's worth defragmenting your xp partition before you start. If win 7 won't cope with the resize try a gparted live cd, it gives you a fairly friendly gui and seems to succeed more often.
