making linux partition bigger?

I am currently running mandrake 10.1, and I am wondering how exactly to repartion my drive so that the linux side has more space... I would play with it myself and figure it out, but since it is sort of a dangerous operation, I thought it would be best to get some advice on this first...

I think you have qparted and(or) the partitioning tool in Mandrake Control Centre. Both allow you to resize a partition (but first you need to take space from another partition, sometimes also move them as free space must be after the peartition you want to add it to).

I recommend backup of your important files before you start (it's not that risky, but it's better to have it).
