Question Resizing ReiserFS without data loss in Slackware 9.1.. ???

Hey there fellow slackers!!

Has anybody had any luck resizing a reiserFS partition and not running into data loss or any sort of file system corruption that would stem from resizing? My 9 gig scsi drive is all i have at the moment and i just need a bit more space on my /home partition for all my ebooks. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Might want to try and read up a little on "parted". I dont know a ton about it but I have heard it is used to resize partitions. Resizing partitions is kind of scary so read carefully! Not a whole lot of info but I hope I helped a little
