I agree with Dan, Qtparted will do the job for you either way. It will, however, not touch ntfs partitions.
Is your distro on one large partition, or does Ubuntu install on multiple partitions?
I'll look at the Ubuntu page later and see what i can find.

you can also use fdisk to recreate that partition. It's all command line but if you are comfortable exploring it it's not that hard.
I'm pretty sure ubuntu creates a / and /home I've always done custom partitions when I set it up. go to the cmd line and type df -h this will show you the parttitions, devies name, and sizes.
