To expand filesystem xxx
make sure there is some space immediately after the partition (or use lvm).
unmount /xxx
Recreate the partition table entry with fdisk or ddruid
using the same starting address and the new size.
Then use the command
resize2fs /xxx

For safety, I usually downgrade ext3 to ext2 beforehand, and upgrade to ext3 afterwards.

Shrinking is harder in that you need to specify the size you need in the correct units.

There is also a resize_reiserfs command which I have never tried.

See the man page for resize2fs

I doubt if you will notice much difference between ext3 and reiserfs.

but what are the advantage of using ext3 against reiserf. Is It simple to
modify the size of ext3 file system if necessary?
