    i'm not sure, but take a look at qtparted. Its the closest thing to Partition Magic you'll see with Linux (or I thought it was) which should allow you to modify it. The main problem is i don't believe you can modify it when the partition's mounted...
    Have a live-cd distro? pop that in and run qtparted and fix it like that if you can.

    try installing qtparted using your distors package manager if it has one, otherwise qtparted is available with knoppix just beware i hear many horror stories about qtparted and reiserfs so be very careful best of luck.
