Resizing HDD partitions?

Hi, I am hoping someone can tell me how to resize my hard drive partitions, on a working system (if it is possible)

I have a 120GB hard drive with two partitions,
21G, mountpoint /media/
96G mountpoint /media/
The filesystem on both is ext3

I only have Slack 12.0 installed, and want to remove the 96G and resize 21G so that it uses all of the available HDD.

If possible, I would like to do it without deleting the files on my system or having to reinstall.

System - Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo pro 2040
1.25GB RAM

Thank you for any and all help.
