How long will this take? I want to split the space a little so I can dual with Linux... It's been "shrinking" for a good 15 minutes, and I'm wondering if this is normal and how long it should take.

It all depends on what you're shrinking, how you're shrinking it, and the ability for your system to deal with the processes required to do it. Be patient - it'll be done when it's done. Messing with it can cause the system to become unusable.
