    How to resize EXT3 partition


    I have dualboot and I realized that Fedora Core 2 needs more and more space. So I limited M$ XP and now I need to resize EXT3 partition. Is there some tool which can do it? I changed NTFS partition size with PQMagic 8 but it doesn't know how to work with EXT3.

    It looks nice but I'm exactly that case that I can't resize EXT3. It's should be only resized forward with this tool but my case is [NTFS][some_free_space][linux_stuff][EXT3]

    I'm thinking about complete backup of my linux and than formating free space with EXT3 together. Any sugestions how to do this from WinXP? Or I can boot Knoppix and do the backup from EXT3 but I think Knoppix doesn't allow to write on NTFS
