(1) get rid of /dev/hda7. You can make it again later ;)
(2) shrink /dev/hda5 however you want:
resize 5 1500 2491
(3) grow /dev/hda6:
resize 6 244 1500
(4) create your swap again
NOTE: you should replace those values with the appropriate Megabyte

Much more complicated than it needs to be! The FAT resizer is rather
flexible... Just resize/move it to where you want it, and it'll do it ;)

You don't need to know.
