Not recognizing larger partition

I used parted to resize my primary linux partition (ext3) from 5 gigs to
10gigs.  I had to delete my extended partition, resize the partition to
10 gigs, then recreate everything behind it.  Everything went off
successfully, the only problem is linux doesnt recognize the changes.  I
rebooted in windows and even windows (partition magic) see's the
partition being 10 gigs now.  Also, parted and fdisk recognizes the
changes.  Its just that I cant use the extra space because linux still
thinks the partition is only 5 gigs.  How do I fix this?  Below is the
output from parted /dev/hdb print,  I also included the output from df. 
I've rebooted several times since the change, I kinda need the space now
so I can upgrade to redhat 7.3  :)

Running redhat 7.2 on a dual celeron 533 bp6 w/ 224 megs ram, voodoo5. 
Drive is a maxtor 20gig.

All help greatly appreciated...
