Are you offering to help by contributing code?  Because honestly, it's
not like we don't want to do it.  But there's only a finite number of
people working on anaconda and a finite amount of time available for
working on what's realisticially a pretty big project[1].  Having some
people interested stepping up and helping to work on code would go a
long way towards getting this done for Fedora 9.

But with the Fedora 8 (and the Fedora 7 even) live CDs, gparted is there
and you can use it for resizing ntfs.  It just doesn't provide a
well-integrated experience


[1] As it currently stands, the partitioning workflow can't really work
within the constraints needed for resizing.  And so some that's also an
area that's going to need changes
