Great! Exactly what I needed! :)

Yep, and I'm getting pretty far by now. :)
but I have a problem with that last step...

I do something like this:
parted -s /dev/hda print | grep -e '^Disk geometry for'
and then I use sed to find the end of the range.

Then I try to resize using that value, something like this:
parted -s /dev/hda resize 1 0 %MAX
But then it just complains that I'm trying to make the partition larger than 
the disk. And then I'm stuck...
