    Ive found the frontends for parted are real buggy and crappy, Ive only successfully resized a ntfs partition with gparted.

    Its made for gnome but Slax is based on kde so it won't work but looks good though.

    You can check if it is mounted with the
    Code:
    mount
    command.

    It should work in slax, with
    Code:
    mount
    you don't have to be a superuser to do this. And type it in the terminal.
