Is it easy to reclaim partitions setup via Disk Utility

    I am thinking of doing a triple boot (SL, Debian and Win7).

    However because I am really doing this because I can (or at least attempt), it strikes me at some point I might decide I want to go back to all Snow Leopard. Now here's the thing; is it easy to increase the space of the SL install again if I decide to trash Win7. I'll build the space for Debian at the end as I am positive I won't be trashing that partition.

    So something like:
    Snow Leopard - 250GB
    Windows 7 - 125GB
    Shared Partition (probably NTFS) - 50GB
    Debian - 75GB

    The most likely partition to go is the Win7 one and I would like to either add it to Snow Leopard or the Shared Partiition. That is, I would like to increase the size of one of them.

    So I've seen from Disk Utility and Boot Camp Attempts that Boot Camp takes space from the space that is designated as being for the Mac drive you are booting from (from my initial assessment). So I increased the Mac size to hold Mac and Win7 and I will assign the Win7 size via Boot Camp.

    Probably a stupid question, but can Windows installs see the Mac partition?
