    It seems i've underestimated how much I was gonna actually use windows and I havnt made the partition big enough. Is there any way I can make it bigger without having to format it?

    You can do this is leopard!
    Heres what you do...
    Open Disk Utility
    Click on your HDD on the left
    CLick on the partition tab and click on the main (larger) partition
    Add a partition with the plus button

    I know this is a little annoying as you'll have 3 partitions now but it seems to be the only way (note the disclaimer on the bottom right)

    Yoiu cant do it with your bootcamp partition as it will mess up the partition map. New feature to come later?
