Messed up partition table, DOH

During my pre-installation -- I accidently made the root partition for only 3GB. Everything's installed fine and what not, but how can I fix this partition to be 29GB?

I have a 30GB hard drive

You can boot up using a rescue CD and use resizepart. I'm not sure which ones have this tool but some do?

If it was me I'd just reinstall, slack don't take that long to install.

...or maybe make two extra partitions.
one of another 3 gigs for /usr and the rest for /home.

you'll want a different partition for /home anyway.
