Partitions screwed up



FC 10
Here is my Fdisk;


DEv      BOOT START END     Blocks        ID    SYSTEM

/dev/sda1            1           5099       40957686   83     Linux
/dev/sda2   *       5100     6374       10241432+   7     HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda3            6375   14815       67802332+ 83     Linux
/dev/sda4          14816   14946        1052257+    5     Extended
/dev/sda5          14816   14946        1052227     82    LinuxSwap

The sda1 is really the / Linux boot partition.

When I resized the /dev/sda2 / partition to get 10gb of free space to
make a partition, /dev/sda1 for WindowsXP NTFS, Gparted changed the Partition number.

From what I can see is delete /dev/sda2 and change /dev/sda1 Linux / to /dev/sda2 to get back to Linux / as Boot.

I don't know a whole bunch about Linux, so please be very definitive on what I need to do to get these partitions straighten out.

FC10 is a new install and I don't want to loose /home and My sister has just got to have Windows

sda2 is /
sda3 is /home
