you don't really need to resize.... you can mount some of your current system from that extra partition.
what partition is it? I'll call it /dev/hdax here. We are going to mount the /home directory on it here, but that can really be replaced by whatever you want.
mke2fs /dev/hdax # makes an ext2 filesystem on the drive
mount /dev/hdax /mnt # mounts hdax to /mnt
##instead of "mv" here, you may want to run it all through with "cp"... just to make sure it all transfers smoothly (I don't wanna screw you up)
mv -R * /mnt ## moves everything from /home to /mnt... your other partition
now you are going to have to edit your /etc/fstab file. put a line like this:
/dev/hdax /home ext2 defaults 1 2
now, when you reboot, /dev/hdax will be mounted on /home, your original partition will have space, and your system will be happy
if you do want to resize the partition, there are two programs from gnu for it..."fips" and "parted" check 'em out
