Post AMD64 - Hard Drive Partitioning

I have an AMD64 box, installed with M$ Windows XP. It's hard drive is split into two partitions/drives: C: (91,5 Gb) and D: (95 Gb). The idea is to shrink the D: drive's size (without losing data) so, that the space what would be left is used to a partition for an another operating system. I will then install FreeBSD (or other Unix-like OS) into my box with Windows (dual booting).
But I have a problem. I have tried GParted and Visopsys Partition Logic but they doesn't work because they support only i386 architecture, not amd64. I don't have any commercial partitioning applications (like Norton PartitionMagic). What is the best FREE partition management application for AMD64 arch that can shrink partitions without losing data?

I don't know is my English perfect (that's not my native language) but I think you understand well.
