How to extend storage on a partition

  1. Okay, Complicated question.

    I have one hard drive partitioned between

    Windows XP Home edition And Ubuntu 10.10

    The ubuntu is 5.29 GB's

    The Windows XP is 148.08 GB's

    I want to extend the Storage space on the ubuntu Partition without having to delete and reinstall Ubuntu.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks for the Help.

    This program works for Windows. You just burn the iso file to a cd and boot from it. It boots into a linux gui, but it lets you change the partion size.

    Hopefully you didn't delete it.
    Check if it's sill there on ubuntu, also, you may have just inadvertently changed the name.
