Resizing a partition


I am using Fedora 5 and was trying to run "yum updates" and it failed several updates because of space constraints. I ran a df -h and realized that many of the updates want to install themselves on the /usr partition. It only has 100mg left and I need 500+mg to install all of the updates. How does one resize partitions in linux?

I would download systemrescuecd from freshmeat.net and use qtparted which is a partition magic clone. Thats the easiest way plus you get a live CD for doing things like cloning hard drives (which is what I use it for).
