The partition tool is designed to partition disks and not resize 
partitions, you will need a partition tool similar to Partition Magic or 
the open source parted program. 'parted' is a decent tool with a nice 
GUI frontend developed known as 'qtparted', this is on alought of live 
distros, if you have a copy of Knoppix boot that up and run 'qtparted', 
advised to defrag your H/D first
