Is gparted a good tool for resizing an NTFS partition?

I have a backtrack 5 distribution which is based on ubuntu. During the instalation it somehow managed to create a separate partition ext4 on a external harddrive which was based on ntfs. Now this external harddrive is devided into two partitions. My problem is that I dont't think windows wil recognize ext4 but I also would like to merge those two back together. Is there any good partitioner for linux, which will merge both to ntfs?

gparted http://bit.ly/software-large is a partitioning tool available for Ubuntu. It can handle NTFS partitions.

Delete the ext4 partition and expand the existing NTFS partition to fill the empty space.
