linux does not recognise my resized partition

linux does not recognise my resized partition

I recently tried to resize my / partition. Previously it looked like
this:

(parted) print
Disk geometry for /dev/hda: 0.000-19077.187 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem  Flags
1          0.031  15526.054  primary   fat32       boot, lba
2      15526.055  15577.734  primary   ext3        
3      15577.734  18826.171  primary   ext3        
4      18826.172  19077.187  extended              lba
5      18826.203  19077.187  logical   linux-swap  

I think I have resized the partitions OK. This is what it currently
looks like:

(parted) print
Disk geometry for /dev/hda: 0.000-19077.187 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem  Flags
1          0.031   8999.648  primary   FAT         boot, lba
2       8999.648   9058.710  primary   ext3
3       9058.711  18826.171  primary   ext3
4      18826.172  19077.187  extended              lba
5      18826.203  19077.187  logical   linux-swap
(parted) quit

But now the problem is that RedHat does not appear to have picked up
on the extra space. i.e. `df -kH .` from / still shows /dev/hda3 as
3.5GB. I presume I have to extend the filesystem to utilise the extra
space made available by extending the
partition ?? How do I do this?

Sorry if these are stupid questions but I am new to all this. I have
pasted some more info on the current partition layout below:


/dev/hda3 on / type ext3 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
usbdevfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbdevfs (rw)
/dev/hda2 on /boot type ext3 (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
none on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)

Disk /dev/hda: 240 heads, 63 sectors, 2584 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1   *         1      1219   9215608+   c  Win95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hda2          1220      1227     60480   83  Linux
/dev/hda3          1228      2550  10001880   83  Linux
/dev/hda4          2551      2584    257040    f  Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
