You can use gparted ( for instance ) to resize a partition or you can use the cli, but it is SLOOOoooowwww, I have found if I need to resize a partition its quicker to back up the data delete the partition resize it and then restore the data, either way make sure you back up your data BEFORE resizing as if somthing goes wrong during the opertaion you could end up losing all the data on the partition.

Have you tried the suggestion made in the other thread?

The speed argument is also very valid.
