Ah noted. I wish it automagically just went "fast". :)

dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/hdb
When I was trying to blank it was even slower. I will try bs=10M...

Remember it was:
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1              19G   13G  4.7G  74% /
/dev/hda3              65G  8.9G   53G  15% /home

Now it is:
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1              19G  4.1G   14G  24% /
/dev/hda3              92G   15G   73G  17% /home

ext2resize is a good tool. :)

Thank you for the help,
