I'm too clear on what you are looking for, so i'm guessing 
that you want to resize/move a partition. In that case, you 
may be interested in looking at gnu-parted. A free program 
that can resize/move partitions. It has a rough interface 
from what i remember, but it got the job done for me. If 
you are looking for an easy to use solution there is 
partition magic, which is a commercial product, that can 
resize partitions. It only runs on windows, but has the 
ability to manipulate ext2 filesystems.
Hope this helps,
