Resizing ext3 partitions

Hello, I have a dual boot system with XP and Linux Mandrake 9.1.

I'm nearly out of disk space on the XP partition, and there is space for miles left in the linux partitions. So, I would like to resize them.

However, I used the latest versions of Partition Magic and Acronis PartitionExpert and they both say that my ext3 partitions are full, when they aren't even close to being full. Needless to say, I can't resize them.

Help!

maybe you tried resizing the wrong ext3 partition *shrugs*

if I remember correctlly, Mandrake has something that helps resize partitions (I think it only works for linux partitions, tho.)
