I'd like to resize an ext3 partition.  My partition table looks like:

address@hidden sbin]# ./parted /dev/hda print
Warning: Unable to determine if partitions are mounted via /proc/mounts or 
Make sure you don't attempt to resize or modify mounted file systems.  (Even
read-only mounted)

5     155308.104 156327.824  logical   linux-swap  
Information: Don't forget to update /etc/fstab, if necessary.             

But when I try to resize I get this odd error message:

address@hidden sbin]# ./parted /dev/hda print 3
No Implementation: This ext2 filesystem has a rather strange layout!  Parted 
resize this (yet).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I'm using parted-1.6.6:

address@hidden sbin]# ./parted --version
GNU Parted 1.6.6
