Unhappy How do I free up space on / directory? I'm at 100% in use


I'm a complete newbie running RedHat 9, and I need to reallocate the memory on my harddisk.
I guess I didn't do such a good job partitioning my hard drive.

When I do that, I see:

Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3 2316536 2179008 19852 100% /
/dev/hda2 101107 9324 86562 10% /boot
/dev/hda6 1683960 70256 1528160 5% /home
none 192012 0 192012 0% /dev/shm

Can anyone advise me as to how to create more space on / directory?

Thank you,

you could try gnu-parted. i've never used it so i can't vouch for how well it works, so (as always) back up your data first.
