I don't think it's impossible, when it is resized it would take a long time to create a new FAT (i think it creates a new FAT) and reincludes everything in the partiton

I think you should use Partition Magic.
It can format, resize drives, convert drives to NTFS, FAT, ext ...

And especially, it's very easy to use

Gay sauce? WTF is gay sauce?

Does partition Magic explicitly support 2003? I couldn't find anything on there site so i gave a him a Powerquest link.. shoot me! There is a program called boot-it partition resizer thats even easier to use than partition magic. It's definitely not impossible.

You should be able to convert the drive from a basic drive into a dynamic drive within the disk tools with windows 2003 server, and then simply extend the partition to the extra space available. No extra software needed! Good luck!
