If you mean "increase" the size of the partition, it is the same as on any Linux system. Not knowing your partition layout such as the number of partitions, their size and location it is not possible to be any more specific.

increase space on the disk, boot into rescue or boot using live cd, delete boot partition, recreate it, resize2fs (you may need to run e2fsck soemtimes) and boot it back. Test it before you do this on live production box though.

You need unallocated space contiguous to your boot partition or you are going to have problems. Or if you don't have that, you need to move a paratition to make room to expand. Usually the boot partition is at or near the beginning of a drive. Not knowing your partition setup, everything is just guesswork.
