You can download GParted. Do a quick Google search and burn it to a CD or flash drive. From there, resizing and reconfiguring your partitions is straightforward.

Warning: When you start reconfiguring the partitions (When you click "Apply Changes" in the program), do not let the computer lose power. Otherwise, you WILL lose your data.

How large is the actual hard drive? Also, what are the sizes of any other paritions on that particular hard drive?

+1 to gracefully on using GParted. It is a great tool. However, before using it, be sure to back up all critical files to an alternate location before you attempt to change partition sizes. Better safe than sorry.

Good luck!
