Partitioning: GNU Parted

I downloaded the image file "partboot-1.4.21.img" and I created a boot disk, Next, I rebooted my system with the boot disk. I Started Parted with "parted dev/hda3" then Next, I entered the command "resize 1 0.000 END" to downsize /dev/hda3 Then, I used to create a new primary partition with the command "mkpartfs extended ext3 0.000 END", and then "quit", but when I rebooted I typed in a new terminal df -h and everything is like before, nothing changed in my disk the space is the same. What can I do?
