i'm almost sure windows has built in ways to resize a partition. I'd try the link below first. if that doesn't fit your needs, you could boot a linux live cd and run gparted or qtparted to resize the partition.
Diskpart.exe is included with Windows Server 2003. If for some reason you don't have it you can download it at the URL that 6stemD provided.
You can also convert the disk from a basic disk to a dynamic disk and extend the file system. Though extended file systems on a dynamic disk are (IMHO) not as nice as a contiguous partition on a basic disk. (I would try diskpart.exe before I extended a file system via dynamic disks.)
I have also done this routinely with Acronis TrueImage and similar utilities. I will speak to the possibilities with Acronis Disk Directer (server version) with its ability to access RAIDs, Fiber Channel, and a lot of other nifty things.
