how resize a reiserfs partition?

I was just wondering if anybody coiudl tell me how to resize a reiserfs partition. I googled it, and it seems like parted has trouble with reiserfs, but fdisk and cfdisk are fine. I was just wondering if anybody could possibly explain what do with these partition programs, because I am horribly confused over what to do. Thanks!

the reiserfs is not a partition, it's a filesystem.
shrinking or growing?

have you spare space? can you copy it and resize?

I want to also make my reiserfs partition bigger. I know how to do it, but will it work? Is it safe? I could just use qt parted or something on a livecd.
