(First off, are you able to reinstall it? The Red Hat installer has a SWEEET

Resizing is still a scary operation! I would avoid it if at all possible. If
you absolutely have to resize, your best bet is to use a boot disk such as
the LNX-BBC, or your distro disk, which might have the tools on it too.
Good luck, I've managed to avoid resize2fs so far, ;-)
