You will need a third party disk management utility, like Acronis Disk Director, or similar, to do that.
 
A Google search on "XP resize partition" will provide a variety of solutions.  I known for certain that Acronis Disk Director works as expected 100% of the time, but you have to make up your own mind about the other solutions that you may find as result of a Googel serach.
 
Cheers,

Gparted has never failed me yet. YMMV.
As with any partition resizer, ALWAYS backup your valuable data first. Even the slightest glitch will cause a complete loss of data when dealing with partitions. BTDT.
