  No, if the filesystem is mounted (either being written or read at),
you cannot resize it safely. Boot knoppix (or ubuntu live or some other
livecd) and resize your partition from there. Another solution would be
to keep (like i do) a small system (say debian stable|testing) at a
fixed position on the disk, either the beginning or the end of the disk.
