ext3 partition = partition formated with ext3 file system.

fdisk does not resize partitions, unless you delete it and recreate it, but 
then you loose all data. The softwares I mentioned resize partition 
on-the-fly. However, for some reason, the resize option is disabled in both.

I'll give it a try.
