Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Download it and burn it on a disc. Then reboot your computer. This will allow you to resize your Linux partition and create an NTFS partition.

I don't think you need to install an NTFS partition, the Windows install does it by itself. Just run the Live CD and resize the Linux partition.
