expand partition


I want to expand partition sd4 for some more space. Below are some information of my server partitions.
Please, any sugestions?


[root@myserver ~]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00
34G 8.6G 24G 27% /
/dev/sda1 99M 54M 40M 58% /boot
tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda3 109G 83G 20G 81% /RACC
/dev/sda4 30G 26G 3.0G 90% /RACCEXT


[root@myserver ~]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 268.4 GB, 268435456000 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 32635 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 14 5221 41833260 8e Linux LVM
/dev/sda3 5222 19581 115346700 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 19582 23497 31455270 83 Linux

You should do it using a Linux Live CD or a Parted Magic/GParted CD rather than trying to do it from a running system which can cause major problems. If you have issues trying to use a partitioner, post back.

Thanks for reply yancek.
I do not have physical access to the server. I have to do it from the command line.
