Do bear in mind that you will need to be sure you are not using any files on that partition when you do (or bad things may occur - but not necessarily).

If you installed this from a live CD/DVD you may also be able to resize the partitions using gparted from booting off the live CD/DVD. You should also be able to move partitions around if they are not contiguous. Files shouldn't be in use as you are using the live disc.

let us know how it goes.
