Increasing the swap partition

I am interested in increasing my swap partition. I would like to do this 
without having to reinstall so, I would like to do it right, by asking someone 
here for some __good__ advice.

Here is what my current layout looks like.

address@hidden parted]# ./parted /dev/hda

Using /dev/hda
Warning: The operating system thinks the geometry on /dev/hda is 4865/255/63.
Therefore, cylinder 1024 ends at 8032.499M.  You should check that this matches
the BIOS geometry before using this program.
(parted) print
Disk geometry for /dev/hda: 0.000-38166.679 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem  Flags
1          0.031     15.688  primary   ext2        boot
2         15.688  38162.219  extended              
5         15.719    149.040  logical   linux-swap  
6        149.071  38162.219  logical   ext2        


I would like to increase the swap from 136M to at least 1G.

Any suggestions are welcomed as I am new to this tool and would prefer not to 
have to re-OS my box cause I forgot that one easy step.
