Adding space on Fedora Core 6

I have a 85G Hard Drive on my server but when I received I noticed that not all the space are used and now I need to add that space.

df -k

Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3 34041244 22473828 9810308 70% /
/dev/sda1 101086 10181 85686 11% /boot
tmpfs 1037656 0 1037656 0% /dev/shm

fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 85.8 GB, 85899345920 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 10443 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 14 78 522112+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda3 79 4453 35142187+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 4454 10443 48114675 5 Extended

Does any body can help me how to add that space in a new file system or existing one.

Thanks in advanced

Add sda5,6,etc to your taste in the extended partition
remove sda4 and use ext2resize to increase the size of sda3

I would back it up first and schedule the job on a low priority time when you can reinstall without upsetting anyone. Just in case.
