Another Ubuntu question.

I first made this laptop dual boot to Ubuntu about a year or two ago, I forget how long ago. But the first time I did it, I didn't give it enough memory, and had to get advice on how to expand the memory Ubuntu got. Well, I'm finding the 10 gigs I gave it a little restrictive now, and I have no clue what happened to the original instructions on how to expand that. So if anyone could help me with that, I'd be very grateful.

I did this dual-booting thing automatically with the install disk, if that makes a difference. Oh, and the Windows side is Windows 7.

No, you need gparted, or it's equivalent, and you need to boot from CD-ROM, or a flash drive. Trust me. :)

Yeah, seconded. Gparted or KDE Partition manager if you're using that desktop environment. That's really the only safe way to resize partitions on a disk... and even, the caveat of back up your data first on an external drive or remote site applies a thousand times over. You might make a mistake.
