If your partition runs out of space you have to increase it. This has nothing to do with mysql.
You can move the mysql data to a larger partition in 4 steps:
1) stop the mysql daemon
2) move the data directory (default /var/lib/mysql, look in my.cnf) to another directory on a larger partition
3) change the datadir entry in my.cnf
4) restart mysqld

No I can't. If you don't understand the 4 steps you should first learn about the linux OS, how daemons/services work, how you modify partitions etc.
