I've got 2 partitions now, one is Mac and one is Windows. When I used the bootcamp assistant to create my Windows partition, I accidently put too little space. Oh yeah and also, the Windows partition is NTFS. Any way to extend it?

Sounds complicated, I will just reinstall Windows on a bigger partition. It will take 30-60 mins.

I think you can easily extend your windows partition via free Partition Assistant, try: http://www.extend-partition.com/free-partition-manager.html

This freeware software home edition supports 32 bit Windows operating systems including Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7. It can Resize and Move Partition, Extend System Drive, Repartition, Merge, Split Partition and so on. It's very convenient and magic for common users to acquire more advantages in disk partition management field.

Partition Assistant Home Edition is designated for home user only. It is required to purchase a Professional Edition of the partition manager if you want to use it in a business environment or in 64 bit Windows platform.
Doesn't sound promising for a typical Boot Camp installation which is EFI/GPT not BIOS/MBR based like is required for a 32 bit OS.
