repartitioning reiserfs?


Whats a good program to resize a reiserfs partition without destroying the data on it? I'd like to chop mine in half an have the other a ext3, ext2, or fat32 partition, but its the partition my distro is so I don't think i could unmount it, thanks for reading

EDIT: Added some extra fs
