Resizing ReiserFS Partitions -- Can it be done safely?

I'm looking for advise and success stories on resizing ReiserFS
partitions on Ubuntu Hoary. I just noticed this evening how near to full
my "/" partition is. I have plenty of extra room in "/home". I would
like to shrink the one and give up that space to other without losing
files and functionality. Can it be done safely?

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2             5.6G  5.0G  608M  90% /
tmpfs                 126M     0  126M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda3              32G  4.0G   28G  13% /home
/dev                  5.6G  5.0G  608M  90% /.dev
none                  5.0M  2.8M  2.3M  55% /dev
