Resizing EXT3 partition using parted???


I was woundering about how i go about using parted to resize a partition, i downloaded, compiled and installed it. I type
Code:
parted /dev/hdf1
type resize, it askes for the partition number so i type 0 then it wants a start number, is this also 0?? after that it wants an end number however i am unable to go higher that the current size.

This is how the drive looks in cfdisk.
Code:
                              Disk Drive: /dev/hdf
                        Size: 30738677760 bytes, 30.7 GB
              Heads: 255   Sectors per Track: 63   Cylinders: 3737

    Name        Flags      Part Type  FS Type          [Label]        Size (MB)
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    hdf1                    Primary   Linux ext3                        8217.06 
                            Pri/Log   Free Space                       22249.39
    hdf5                    Logical   Linux swap                         271.44
And this is it when i do print 1 in parted
Code:
Minor: 1
Flags: 
File System: ext2
Size:           7836.363Mb (100%)
Minimum size:   6893.602Mb (87%)
Maximum size:   7836.363Mb (100%)
(parted)
