This is my disk geometry:

 (parted) print
Disk geometry for /dev/hda: 0.000-57241.898 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem  Flags
1          0.031   7169.633  primary   ext3        boot
2       7169.634  10997.622  primary   ext3
3      17414.209  56329.475  primary   ext3
4      56329.475  57239.406  primary   linux-swap

 Using parted i have successfuly shrinked part. 2.
 The problem is that I want to resize part. 3 to use the free space left
from part 2.
 When i do the resize I get:

(parted) resize 3 10997.622
End?  [56329.4746]?
Warning: You requested to resize the partition to 10997.622-56329.474Mb.
The closest Parted can manage is 17414.209-56329.475Mb.

I also tryed to move part 3 to 10997.622 with no success (man page says I
cant do it)

(parted) move 3 10997.622
End?  [49912.8872]?
Error: Can't move a partition onto itself.  Try using resize, perhaps?

 How should I fix this problem?
 I dont have another HDD.

Best Regards,
