If you set you system up using LVM (Logical Volume Manager) AND you did not allocate all the space then you can use the 'lvextend' command.

If you didn't have any extra space left over, or you didn't use logical volumes then ....the news is not so good. With any file system other than root you could copy it to somewhere else create a new larger file system and copy the files back. With root the only way I know to do it is to rebuild the OS and allocate the space at installation time.
