Well as far as i can understand your situation, You should not have problem doing that from any one of the Operating System Just keep in mind what is actual size of your disk & how much you have already utilised & allocated to both partitions Do you have any space unpartitioned? You can perform the task from any of the operating system.! Go ahead!

Hey you can add a second Hard Drive!
Partiton Magic from your windows partition & Qparted/Gparted/Kparted from your linux distro should allow you to resize the partitions.
