As others have said, the DOS utility FIPS, which comes with most Linux
distributions, will do the trick if you first defrag your hard disk. You
might also want to look into the Ranish Partition Manager
(http://www.users.intercom.com/~ranish/part/), which is a bit more
sophisticated and includes a boot selector program as well. I've never
used it myself, though, and I don't know if it also require defragging the
hard disk before you use it. (The commercial Partition Magic does NOT
require this, and version 4 also supports resizing Linux ext2 partitions,
so you might want to consider PM even though it costs money.)
