Resizing a partition (ext3)


I made my Linux-partition way too big and I'd like to make it smaller. Any suggestions how it'd be possible?

Partitionmagic 8.0 supports only ext2

gnu parted supports ext3 resize
i've tried it, and it worked..

check on icewalkers.com or gnu.org or tucows.com
there is also qtparted which is a graphical frontend to parted.
