resize ext3 filesystem


yep.. don't know how to do it.. I've done it with reiser before but never ext2/3
and I don't really feel like googling my head off today..

I have a 15 gig slack partition on an 80 gig disk.... I just got it.. but since I copied the filesystem bit for bit from an 8 gig disk the fs is still 8 gigs and.. I'm lacking a comfortable amout of free space.. and on top of that I HATE not having free space available to me..

"resize2fs /dev/hda2" will enlarge the filesystem on /dev/hda2 to the size of the entire partition.
