I would suggest you use a live distro like Gparted. Do not try to resize a mounted file system. Boot the live distro, and do what ever partition manipulations you need.

See this link -->http://gparted.sourceforge.net/

The tool is graphical, and easy to use. You need the free space adjacent to the partition to add it. There are tutorials available on how to re-size partitions. Without more information, it is not possible to help more.

Not sure what you mean.

Redhat doesn't boot the live CD. Go into the BIOS and change the setting for your CD/DVD drive to be a bootable device, set it before your hard drive. That should allow the live CD to boot.
