Personally, I don't use Partition Magic on any system I can't
afford to lose. I've been using it since it was an OS/2 application
that came on 2 floppies, and I've seen it break stuff occasionally. 
A lot of times it could be fixed if you read the manual and examine 
the error messages carefully, but I'd suggest backing up anything
you want to keep on the XP partition. I've never seen it break 
anything on a Linux partition, but the Windows side could be in for 
trouble. 

Just my opinion, of course.
