What do you mean by "safely"? I have a few partitions which can be shrunk (Reiserfs), so it should offer to do so. 
Here is my fstab: 
/dev/md3             /                    reiserfs   acl,user_xattr        1 1 
/dev/md0             /boot                ext3       acl,user_xattr        1 2 
/dev/md1             /boot2               ext3       acl,user_xattr        1 2 
/dev/md2             /boot3               ext3       acl,user_xattr        1 2 
/dev/md5             /home                reiserfs   acl,user_xattr        1 2 
/dev/hda8            /root2               reiserfs   acl,user_xattr        1 2 
/dev/hdd8            /root3               reiserfs   acl,user_xattr        1 2 
/dev/md4             swap                 swap       pri=42                0 0
