    I haven't tried this, but I'm pretty sure the partition must not be mounted for this, which would make it tricky if you don't have a live CD to work from. If you have space, you could create a swap file, change /etc/fstab and reboot with the old partition unmounted so you can change it. Some risk there if your not careful. Maybe the best bet is to create a second swap partition. Good information here. It says you can have up to 16 swap areas and up to 2Gb swap.

    If any of the above is inaccurate, please correct me.
