Resize Root

I have a XEN Server, I am running 4 XEN guests on it. On one of the guests when I run df -kh command, this is what I see:

[root@storage dev]# df -kh
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/xvda1 4.4G 4.4G 0 100% /
tmpfs 129M 0 129M 0% /dev/shm
188G 136G 43G 76% /backupvolume
188G 108G 71G 61% /livedatamirror
235G 104G 119G 47% /supportdrive
19G 2.4G 16G 14% /customer_downloads
76G 27G 45G 38% /vmail

As you can see my root is at 100%, how can I increase the size on this?
