Unhappy Problems with Diskdrake

When I installed Mandrake 8.1 on my rather small (1.3GB) hard-drive, it gave the root directory about 700MB (i.e. just enough for the normal install) and the /home directory much more space than I need for my single-user system. Diskdrake lets me decrease the amount allocated to /home ... but I can't figure out how to add space to the root directory.

Help, please!


PS -- fdisk scares me!
