Download the ISO for a liveCD...pretty much any distro will do. Make the liveCD or liveUSB, shut down your computer, boot into the liveCD/USB, and use that distro's partitioning tools to modify your hard drive's partition table.
I boot the virtual amchine with the linux machine in it
What virtual machine? Is this not a real computer? If the linux OS that you want to resize is inside a VM, you'll need to pass the DVD drive to the VM through the VM software before the VM will see it as a boot option.
Please explain the setup, we have no idea what kind of system you're working with. I'm basically taking stabs in the dark based off of passing comments you're making, and you're neither confirming nor denying any of the assumptions I'm making, or answering any of our questions.
