I presume ext2resize doesn't apply?
You will have fun resizing mounted partitions.... To quote Job chapter
41 at you, "Remember the battle and don't do it again" :). You can
remove the /boot line from fstab, as once it has the kernel, it doesn't
need to mount /boot unless you write to it. But a 2.6 kernel doesn't let
go of /boot too easily.
Can you afford a reboot on a live cd or summat? Then look for fdisk,
cfdisk, & sfdisk as root. One of them allows you fill in spaces better
than the others (too rushed here to look at man pages).
