Try gparted (from http://gparted.sourceforge.net/ ), it is avaiable using a RPM and it works well. It allows to resize Linux's partitions.

About WinXP taking over your mdr, it is all true. Just after your WinXP install you will not be able of starting Fedora. But it should not be a problem installing grub from WinXP or simply editing the boot.ini file in order to remedy the problem. ( scroogle will help you )
